HUNTSVILLE — Richard Aaron Cobb was pronounced dead at 6:27 p.m. at the Death House in Huntsville. Cobb's final appeal was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court about an hour before his execution was scheduled to begin. Cobb was sentenced to death in 2004 for the 2002 murder of a mentally disabled man in Cherokee County.
