Why did Pizzaro execute Huayna Capac?


I was wondering why Pizzaro executed Huayna Capac after he had provided him with all that gold? Was there an outstanding reason or was purely to incite terror?

1.His name is Francisco Pizarro, not Pizzaro, he was a Spaniard, not an Italian

2.Smallpox killed Huayna Capac, not Pizarro

3.It was Atahualpa who got killed by Pizarro... More than inspiring terror I think Pizarro wanted to eliminate opposition

It would indeed have been at the peril of the Spaniards if they had released Atahualpa. He certainly would have had the character and support to bring the fight to them if given his freedom.
