At ou By: Qual utilizar com Death

Ola amigos, a minha duvida esta relacionada ao uso da preposição nesta frase:

"He was died by death penalty. He was died at death penalty."

Olá Yara,

Minha sugestão:

He was killed by the death penalty.


Boa sorte!
Hello, here are some options - Killed by the death penalty sounds weird to me -

- He was sentenced to death.
- He was executed (by lethal injection)


Instead of the word KILLED use EXECUTED.

I just saw this post and wanted to contribute (although it's an old one)

See ya!
