Missouri killer set for execution, scrutiny high after Arizona

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 23:06
Missouri officials are pressing forward with the Wednesday execution of convicted killer Michael Worthington despite calls for caution after last month's problematic execution in Arizona in which the inmate took more than an hour to die. The Missouri execution will be the first since the July 23 execution in Arizona of Joseph Wood, who some witnesses said gasped and struggled for breath for more than 90 minutes as he was put to death at a state prison complex. Attorneys for Worthington have filed two different stay applications with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the high court to prohibit Missouri from putting Worthington to death until more scrutiny is given to what happened in Arizona and to ongoing secrecy in Missouri about the lethal injection drugs being used.
