Joseph Wood, convicted of double murder, was finally put to death by Arizona prison officials by lethal injection, but not after taking nearly two hours to complete the deed..
It began at 13:52 (20:52 GMT), and Wood was pronounced dead at 15:49, one hour and 57 minutes later,according to the Arizona attorney-general’s office. Wood’s lawyers filed an appeal for an emergency stay of execution, after he had been “gasping and snorting for more than an hour” in the death chamber. They argued the extended execution process violated Wood’s right to be executed in the absence of cruel and unusual punishment. source
