"Mr. Lockett was convicted of shooting a 19-year-old woman in 1999 and having her buried alive. Mr. Warner, condemned for the rape and murder of an 11-month-old girl in 1997, was to be executed two hours later."

I don't give a damn what happens to them. Burying a woman alive and raping an 11 month-old baby?!?!?! Jesus Christ!!!!!!!

A botched execution hopefully made him experience what his victims also experienced. People like these should have a couple botched attempts at execution, why should their deaths be pain free.

They meant to fucc him up. Don't know if I care but still...

Murderer who died after botched execution was hit with a taser hours earlier and had the execution drugs pumped into his GROIN

  • Clayton Lockett was shocked into submission after refusing to leave his cell for routine medical exams prior to execution
  • Doctors could not find a suitable entry for the drugs in Lockett's arms, legs, feet or neck
  • Lockett execution halted 20 minutes after first drug administered
  • This cocktail of injections had not been tried in Oklahoma before
  • Lockett sat up 13 minutes in and said 'something's wrong'
  • President Obama's spokesman said that the White House does not believe the execution was done in a humane way
  • Oklahoma governor is calling for an independent review of the execution
  • Lockett and his accomplices shot Stephanie Neiman, 19, then buried her while she was still breathing after raping her friend in 1999
  • Lockett's victim's family put out a statement- presumably written before the execution-saying they are 'thankful this day has arrived'
  • Inmate finally suffered a massive heart attack and died at 7.06pm

Clayton Lockett spent forty minutes writhing in agony before dying of a heart attack

The Oklahoma murderer who died of a heart attack following his botched execution was tasered in the hours prior, it was revealed Thursday.

The timeline released by the state's Corrections Department also revealed that Clayton Lockett was given his mystery drug cocktail through veins in his groin after a phlebotomist was unable to find suitable entry in his extremities or neck.

It was also revealed Thursday that the convicted murderer and rapist had a self-inflicted wound on his arm and refused to eat or see his attorneys leading up to the execution.

The morning before the Tuesday execution began with trouble from the start as Lockett was subdued with electricity after refusing to undergo a routine x-ray given to all condemned prisoners.

NewsOK reports that authorities soon found a self-inflicted wound on his arm, but determined it did not need stitches.

Lockett subsequently refused to eat or see his attorneys and things only became worse after the deadly IV was inserted into a vein in his groin instead of in an arm, leg, foot or his neck.

The groin was covered by a sheet 'to prevent witness viewing of the groin area,' according to the report.

Lockett began writhing, clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head off the pillow Tuesday evening after he had supposedly been rendered unconscious by the first of three drugs in the state's new lethal injection combination.

The execution was halted, and Lockett died of an apparent heart attack 10 minutes later, authorities said.

It was a bittersweet time for for the family of Stephanie Neiman, 19, who Lockett and his accomplices buried alive in 1999 and who wrote on the day of execution that they are 'thankful this day has finally arrived.'

It was, however, a shocking day for the murderer's family who say Lockett deserved to pay for his crimes, but not to suffer.

'I'm not seeking financial gain from this,' Lockett's stepmother Ladonna Hollins told NBC.

Hollins raised Lockett from the time he was six years old and says the system that left her stepson to die an excruciating death needs fixing.

'I want them to admit they did wrong and after that, let’s change this,' she said. 'If we are going to put people to death, let's do it the right way.'

HOW THE BOTCHED EXECUTION DAY PLAYED OUT

6.23pm - The injection process begins. Authorities cover Lockett's groin with a towel and inject the first of three untested chemicals into a vein after they were unable to find a suitable site elsewhere

6.29pm - Consistently closed his eyes

6.30pm - First check of consciousness; still conscious

6.33pm - Announced Lockett was officially unconscious

6.34pm - Lockett started to move his mouth

6.36pm - Lockett began convulsing and mumbling

6.37pm - Lockett sat up and said 'something's wrong'

6.39pm - Prison officials lowered the blinds

7.06pm - Lockett dies of massive heart attack

The White House said the botched fell short of the humane standards required when the death penalty is carried out.

Officials halted Clayton Lockett's execution Tuesday when he convulsed violently and tried to lift his head after a doctor declared him unconscious. He later died of an apparent heart attack after spending 40 minutes writhing in pain.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama believes evidence shows the death penalty doesn't effectively deter crime.

That said, Carney reiterated that Obama believes some crimes are so heinous that the death penalty is merited. He said the crimes in Lockett's case are indisputably heinous.

But Carney says the U.S. has a fundamental standard that the death penalty must be carried out humanely.

He says everyone would recognize that this case fell short.

The White House statement comes after the parents of Lockett's victim, Stephanie Neiman, released a note via the local NBC affiliate, which they are believed to have written before the execution.

'God blessed us with our precious daughter, Stephanie for 19 years. Stephanie loved children. She worked in Vacation Bible School and always helped with our Church nativity scenes. She was the joy of our life. We are thankful this day has finally arrived and justice will finally be served,' the handwritten note reads.

It was signed 'Susie and Steve Neiman, 4-29-14' though it has not been confirmed whether or not they wrote the note before or after the botched execution.

Attempts to reach the Neimans, whose listed phone number has been disconnected, were not immediately successful.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin is calling for an independent review of the state's execution protocols after an inmate had an apparent heart attack 43 minutes after his execution began.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Fallin said Oklahoma Department of Public Safety Commissioner Michael Thompson would lead the review of the lethal injection protocol.

Lockett, 38, who was found guilty of shooting a woman and watching his friends bury her alive, was declared unconscious ten minutes after the first of the state's new three-drug lethal injection combination was administered.

Three minutes later, though, he began breathing heavily, writhing, clenching his teeth and straining to lift his head off the pillow.

It later emerged his vein had ruptured.

The blinds were eventually lowered to prevent those in the viewing gallery from watching what was happening in the death chamber, and the state's top prison official eventually called a halt to the proceedings. 

Local media present said Mr Lockett sat up and said 'something’s wrong' 13 minutes into the procedure.

'It was a horrible thing to witness. This was totally botched,' said Lockett's attorney, David Autry.

Witness Ziva Branstetter told broadcaster MSNBC Lockett was thrashing about and appeared to be in pain.

'His body was sort of bucking. He was clenching his jaw. Several times he mumbled phrases that were largely unintelligible,' she said.

A Tulsa World newspaper claimed that Lockett was 'still alive,' and lifted his head as prison officials lowered the blinds.

Tuesday was the first time Oklahoma used the drug midazolam as the first element in its execution drug combination.

Other states have used it before; Florida administers 500 milligrams of midazolam as part of its three-drug combination. Oklahoma used 100 milligrams of that drug.

'They should have anticipated possible problems with an untried execution protocol,' Autry said.

'Obviously the whole thing was gummed up and botched from beginning to end. Halting the execution obviously did Lockett no good.'

Republican Gov. Mary Fallin ordered a 14-day stay of execution for an inmate who was scheduled to die two hours after Lockett, Charles Warner.

She also ordered the state's Department of Corrections to conduct a 'full review of Oklahoma's execution procedures to determine what happened and why during this evening's execution.'

Robert Patton, the department's director, halted Lockett's execution about 20 minutes after the first drug was administered.

He later said there had been vein failure.

The execution began at 6:23 p.m., when officials began administering the first drug, the sedative midazolam.

A doctor declared Lockett to be unconscious at 6:33 p.m.

Once an inmate is declared unconscious, the state's execution protocol calls for the second drug, a paralytic, to be administered.

The third drug in the protocol is potassium chloride, which stops the heart.

Patton said the second and third drugs were being administered when a problem was noticed.

He said it's unclear how much of the drugs made it into the inmate's system.

Lockett began writhing at 6:36. At 6:39, a doctor lifted the sheet that was covering the inmate to examine the injection site.

'There was some concern at that time that the drugs were not having that (desired) effect, and the doctor observed the line at that time and determined the line had blown,' Patton said at a news conference afterward, referring to Lockett's vein rupturing.

After an official lowered the blinds, Patton made a series of phone calls before calling a halt to the execution.

'After conferring with the warden, and unknown how much drugs went into him, it was my decision at that time to stop the execution,' Patton told reporters.

Lockett was declared dead at 7:06 p.m.

Autry, Lockett's attorney, was immediately skeptical of the department's determination the issue was limited to a problem with Lockett's vein.

'I'm not a medical professional, but Mr. Lockett was not someone who had compromised veins,' Autry said.

'He was in very good shape. He had large arms and very prominent veins.'

'After weeks of Oklahoma refusing to disclose basic information about the drugs for tonight's lethal injection procedures, tonight Clayton Lockett was tortured to death,' said Madeline Cohen, an attorney for Warner.

Adam Leathers, co-chair of the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, accused the state of having 'tortured a human being in an unconstitutional experimental act of evil,' reported CNN.

In Ohio, the January execution of an inmate who made snorting and gasping sounds led to a civil rights lawsuit by his family and calls for a moratorium.

FUEL DEBATE OVER ABILITY OF STATES TO ADMINISTER LETHAL INJECTION

Tuesday was the first time Oklahoma used the drug midazolam as the first element in its execution drug combination.

Other states have used it before; Florida administers 500 milligrams of midazolam as part of its three-drug combination. Oklahoma used 100 milligrams.

The problems with the execution are likely to fuel more debate about the ability of states to administer lethal injections that meet the U.S. Constitution's requirement they be neither cruel nor unusual punishment.

That question has drawn renewed attention from defense attorneys and death penalty opponents in recent months, as several states scrambled to find new sources of execution drugs because drugmakers that oppose capital punishment - many based in Europe - have stopped selling to prisons and corrections departments.

Defense attorneys have unsuccessfully challenged several states' policies of shielding the identities of the new sources of their execution drugs. Missouri and Texas, like Oklahoma, have both refused to reveal their sources, but both of those states have since successfully carried out executions with their new supplies.

The state has stood by the execution but said Monday that it's boosting the dosages of its lethal injection drugs.

A four-time felon, Lockett was convicted of shooting 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman with a sawed-off shotgun and watching as two accomplices buried her alive in rural Kay County in 1999 after Neiman and a friend arrived at a home the men were robbing.

Warner had been scheduled to be put to death two hours later in the same room and on the same gurney.

The 46-year-old was convicted of raping and killing his roommate's 11-month-old daughter in 1997.

He has maintained his innocence.

Lockett and Warner had sued the state for refusing to disclose details about the execution drugs, including where Oklahoma obtained them.

The case, filed as a civil matter, placed Oklahoma's two highest courts at odds and prompted calls for the impeachment of state Supreme Court justices after the court last week issued a rare stay of execution.

The high court later dissolved its stay and dismissed the inmates' claim that they were entitled to know the source of the drugs.

By then, Fallin had issued a stay of her own - a one-week delay in Lockett's execution that resulted in both men being scheduled to die on the same day.

Warner was served a final meal Tuesday of 20 boneless chicken wings, potato wedges, cole slaw, two fruit cocktail cups and a 20-ounce soda.

Lockett's request of steak, shrimp, a large baked potato and a Kentucky Bourbon pecan pie was denied because it exceeded the $15 limit.

He declined a separate offer from the warden for a dinner from Western Sizzlin', prison officials said.

NEVER-BEFORE-TESTED DRUGS THAT TORTURED DEATH ROW INMATE ARE KNOWN TO HARM BREATHING AND HEART FUNCTION

Oklahoma changed its execution protocols twice this year, leaving State officials with five options for lethal injections, including a new three-drug mixture that was used for the first time Tuesday.

Two of the drugs used carry warnings that they can suppress the respiratory system and the third warns that cardiac trouble can occur at high but non-lethal doses, and lists specific steps to take if a medical patient receives too much of the drug but doesn't die.

  • MIDAZOLAM (sedative): Warning labels that accompany packages of midazolam say intravenous use of the drug has been associated with respiratory suppression or respiratory arrest. Monitoring is required in case there is a need to intervene with life-saving medical treatment. Overdoses can result in a slow heart rate, as well.
  • VECURONIUM BROMIDE (paralytic): The package labeling warns that a way to give artificial respiration and oxygen therapy should be available while patients are given vercuronium, which is often used to relax muscles for intubation or during surgery. Respiration 'insufficiency' is listed as a possible adverse reaction.
  • POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (stops heart): The labels include strong warnings that potassium chloride must be given at a slow, controlled rate when administered for the treatment of a potassium deficiency. At higher doses, such as that used in executions, the drug stops the heart. For higher doses that aren't lethal, medical literature says to discontinue the infusion immediately and use injections of dextrose and insulin at certain rates, absorb excess potassium and engage in dialysis. Respiratory paralysis is also possible. Medical literature at the National Institutes of Health says potassium intoxication can cause cardiac arrest and that EKG abnormalities can illustrate trouble.
