With a 13-person death toll, no president has overseen as many federal executions over a 120 year period, noted a report from Al Jazeera.
No apologies were made for the things he was convicted for, on the night 25 years ago where the women by shot by a man named Willis Haynes who received a life sentence. Haynes, who confessed to being the shooter, was sentenced to life in prison, while Higgs was sentenced to death in a separate trial, a disparity that his lawyers say is grounds for clemency.
Over dissenting votes from Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, the Supreme Court refused to delay Mr. Johnson's execution despite the fact that no court had reviewed this evidence or addressed the merits of his claim under modern medical standards for evaluating intellectual disability.
Since resuming federal executions last year after a 17-year hiatus, Mr Trump, a long-time proponent of capital punishment, has overseen more executions than any US president since the 19th century.
The prosecution against Higgs came in the wake of the 1994 Crime Bill, which prompted federal prosecutors to look for cases that could warrant the federal death penalty. For the first time in 20 years due to her restricted finances, Wingate was finally able to visit her brother in the Terre Haute facility ahead of his execution.
Turning her attention to all of the executions Sotomayor wrote: "To put that in historical context, the Federal Government will have executed more than three times as many people in the last six months than it had in the previous six decades".
He maintained his innocence up until his final statement, saying: "I'd like to say I am an innocent man, I did not order the murders".
"When the day is over, your death will not bring my sister and the other victims back", the statement said. By December, the US government had executed more people within the year than all the states that still conduct executions.
Before Trump became president, only three people had been executed by the federal government since 1963.
Justice Sonya Sotomayor called it an "unprecedented rush", saying that "after waiting nearly two decades to resume federal executions, the Government should have proceeded with some measure of restraint to ensure it did so lawfully".
This marks the first time that it had conducted more executions than all USA states combined, according to a database compiled by the Death Penalty Information Centre.
The Supreme Court declined to stop the execution, although some justices dissented, noting that before the first of the 13, it had been 17 years since a federal execution had been carried out.
They also called on President-elect Biden to meet his promise of putting an end to the federal death penalty.
Higgs had told the court that carrying out the sentence after his COVID-19 infection would be cruel because the resulting lung damage would cause a lethal injection of pentobarbitol to give him the sensation of drowning.
"They don't have freedom at all in any sense of the word", she said in an interview on Friday, before Higgs was executed.
Among the 12 people put to death since then was, for the first time in almost 70 years, a woman - Lisa Montgomery, executed Tuesday despite doubts about her mental health.
