Clayton Lockett, 38, was convicted of the killing of 19-year-old, Stephanie Neiman, in 1999. She was shot and buried alive. Lockett was also convicted of raping her friend in the violent home invasion that lead to Neiman’s death. He received the death penalty for his crimes.

Yesterday, Lockett was to be put to death by the Oklahoma’s corrections department with lethal injection. Oklahoma is one of several states that have grappled with shortages of lethal injection drugs. There had been a lot of protest due to the changes of the drug that would end inmate’s lives.

The Oklahoma inmate died a violent death during a botched execution.

Lockett’s attorney, Denver lawyer Dean Sanderford, 35, was there to witness his final hours.

What Sanderford saw, he told The Times afterward, was his worst fear realized: a condemned man enduring pain and suffering at the hands of the state.

Jerry Massie, a spokesman for Oklahoma’s corrections department, explained to the group of witnesses permitted to watch the procedure that the first drug to be used under the state’s new lethal injection protocol would take some time to have its desired effect.

It took 43 minutes after the new drug was given to kill Lockett would work. But, during the time prior it seems as if he was unconscious. It became clear to the selected group of 12 media witnesses and Lockett’s lawyers after seeing Lockett groan and thrash around on the gurney that the procedure didn’t work. The 3 drugs used to kill Lockett had “blown” his veins said the corrections department director, Robert Patton. Patton went on to tell the group “We’ve had a vein failure in which the chemicals did not make it into the offender.”

It was unclear whether Lockett was even dead. Then, Patton spoke to the media and said that Lockett finally died  of “appears to be a massive heart attack” and died inside the execution chamber, away from the eyes of witnesses.

    Apparently it wasn’t a “botched” execution, mission success.

    It should be a requirement that every execution be done like this

    This guy, along with his brother Clarence, Billy Mack, and others from L.A., help to start the Bloods gang in Denver back in the early ’80’s. The Duece-Nice (29th St) Park Hill Bloods is an offshoot of the Crenshaw Mafia Gang from L.A. They’ve been around for 30 years and are very violent.
