muuaji Marekani imejitahidi na gasped kwa hewa kwa angalau 10 Dakika kama yeye aliuawa katika utekelezaji wa muda mrefu kwa kutumia utata mpya madawa ya kulevya cocktail, kulingana na mashahidi.
mwandishi wa habari kwa Columbus Dispatch sasa gazeti la utafutaji utekelezaji wa Dennis McGuire 53 mwenye umri wa miaka taarifa kwamba Ohio muuaji alifanya “mkoromo na choking” sauti kama yeye succumbed.
Ohio maafisa aliiambia AFP kwamba McGuire, kuhukumiwa kifo katika 1989 kwa ubakaji na mauaji ya mwanamke kijana mimba, ilitangazwa wafu 10:53 am (1553 GMT).
Waandishi wa habari ambao walishuhudia utekelezaji alisema madawa ya kutumika katika sindano lethal walikuwa wameanza kuwa unasimamiwa 24 dakika mapema katika gereza katika LUCASVILLE.
Chini ya Ohio itifaki mpya, McGuire aliuawa kwa kutumia cocktail inahusu midazolam sedative na analgesic hidromofoni, mchanganyiko kamwe awali kutumika nchini Marekani.
itifaki mpya utekelezaji ulianzishwa baada Ohio na mataifa mengine ya Marekani kwamba kurejesha adhabu ya kifo alianza mbio nje ya barbiturates wakati wazalishaji wa Ulaya kusimamishwa kusambaza yao.
wanasheria McGuire alikuwa kinyume utaratibu wa utekelezaji, akisema muuaji atakufa ya ukosefu wa hewa katika jambo linalojulikana kama “hewa njaa,” anatoa aina ya adhabu ya kikatili na ya kawaida marufuku chini ya Katiba ya Marekani.
lakini rufaa, ambao walikwenda njia yote ya Mahakama Kuu ya Marekani, yalikataliwa.
Hakimu wa Mahakama Kuu katika Ohio, Gregory Frost, alisema “ushahidi mbele ya mahakama ilishindwa kuwasilisha hatari kubwa kwamba McGuire tutapata maumivu makali.”
Journalists who witnessed Thursday’s execution said McGuire appeared to be suffocating as he was put to death.
According to the pool of reporters, it was the longest execution since Ohio re-introduced the death penalty in 1999.
“At about 10:33 am, McGuire started struggling and gasping loudly for air, making snorting and choking sounds that lasted for at least 10 dakika, with his chest heaving and his fist clenched,” the Columbus Dispatch reported.
“Deep, rattling sounds emanated from his mouth. For the last several moments before he was pronounced dead, he was still.”
Death penalty experts voiced concern at the details of McGuire’s death, saying it pointed to a method of execution which was “egregious and problematic.”
“In light of the length and disturbing descriptions of Dennis McGuire’s execution, in addition to the range of lethal injection complications reported in other states, it appears that this country’s lethal injection procedure is more egregious and problematic than it ever has been,” Deborah Denno, from the Fordham University School of Law, told AFP in an email.
Maya Foa, director of the death penalty team at the Reprieve non-profit group, accused Ohio authorities of ignoring expert advice.
“Ohio was warned by leading experts that experimenting on people in this way risked causing them serious suffering, and the evidence suggests that this has been borne out,” Foa said in a statement.
“How many more botched executions do we need to see before executioners stop using humans as guinea pigs?”
Thursday’s execution was the second carried out this year by US authorities using new products which appeared to result in suffering of the condemned.
Januari 9 in Oklahoma, condemned killer Michael Lee Wilson said he could feel his “whole body burning” as he was put to death.
Wilson was executed using a mix of drugs including pentobarbital, a substance commonly used to euthanize animals.
Hata hivyo, these kinds of drugs are now only produced by pharmacies that are governed by local laws, rather than federal regulators.
A scandal erupted in November 2012 in Massachusetts when poor hygiene at one of these pharmacies was blamed as the cause of a deadly meningitis outbreak.
McGuire is the third man to be executed in the United States this year. Ohio executed three of the 39 people put to death in the United States last year, kulingana na Death Penalty Information Center.
