USA: ‘He is still alive’: Another ‘botched’ execution, this time in Arizona
For at least the third time this year, an execution in the USA has not gone as planned. Following “botched” lethal injections in Ohio in January and Oklahoma in April, the latest execution gone awry and to be added to a list of more than 40 other such executions in the USA since 1982, occurred in Arizona on 23 July. The execution – of Joseph Wood, sentenced to death for two murders committed in 1989 – took over an hour and a half to complete. The ‘humane’ execution by lethal injection is an illusion.
