Clayton Lockett Dies 40 Minutes After Botched Lethal Injection

Okla. killer dies after botched execution

Clayton Lockett takes over 40 minutes to die as execution goes wrong. 

An Oklahoma death row inmate died of a heart attack Tuesday night more than 40 minutes after his execution was halted because the lethal injection of three drugs was botched. The execution of a second convicted murderer was postponed. Corrections Director Robert Patton halted the execution of Clayton Lockett about 20 minutes after the first drug was administered. He said there was a vein failure that prevented the deadly chemicals from reaching Lockett.

Witnesses said Lockett writhed and convulsed on the gurney, shaking uncontrollably.
