He was pronounced dead at 9:18 p.m. EST after being executed by lethal injection. As Maryland abolished the death penalty in 2013, no new convicts can be sentenced to die, but those condemned at the time abolition went into effect remained, technically, under a sentence of death. However, on December 31, 2014, Gov. Martin O'Malley commuted the sentences of the final four condemned inmates to life imprisonment, officially making Baker the last person to be executed by the state of Maryland.
