The authorities in north-western China have executed a farmer convicted of killing 10 people in an axe attack in a temple in Shaanxi province in July.
Earlier, the provincial high court rejected an appeal for a psychiatric examination of the man, Qiu Xinghua.
They said there was no evidence he suffered from a mental illness.
The murders were carried out at a Taoist temple in the city of Ankang. Some of the victims were dismembered, including the temple's abbot.
Qiu had accused the abbot of flirting with his wife.
The victims - the abbot, five temple staff and four pilgrims - were aged between 12 and 62. Nine were male and one female.
The court rejected testimony put forward by his lawyers that many of Qiu's family members were mentally ill.
