Execution “Botched”

Clayton Lockett

(KFOR) The Oklahoma Department Of Corrections has postponed the execution of death row inmate Charles Warner following Tuesday’s botched execution of inmate Clayton Lockett.

D.O.C. Director Robert Patton said Lockett received his first injection at 6:23 p.m. Seven minutes later, the other drugs were injected into his body.

However, Lockett maintained consciousness and witnesses say he began slowly convulsing.

Minutes later, a doctor in the room decided to stop the execution after a “vein line had blown” in Lockett, according to Patton.

At 7:06 p.m., 43 minutes after his first injection, Lockett suffered a heart attack and died inside the execution room.
