A separate group of lawyers for Arkansas death row inmates asked a federal court to preserve evidence in the four executions Arkansas held over eight days this month, saying in a lawsuit that the state’s protocols “did not prevent an execution by torture.”

Arkansas, which had not held an execution in 12 years, concluded its executions series by putting to death Kenneth Williams on Thursday night. Accounts of his execution raised fresh concerns about whether the sedative midazolam, a Valium-like drug, is effective in lethal injection mixes.

Witnesses said Williams, who admitted to killing four people, jerked and gasped for air for about 30 seconds a few minutes after his execution began. The state said it was a routine execution lasting about 15 minutes, but critics said something was amiss.

    Have you ever had a cold and had a coughing fit and thought you would “cough to death”? Well, I guess it actually CAN happen. Sucks to be him.

  • Kim Chul Soo says:

    If he suffered for 30 seconds, it was not nearly enough. Put these bleeding heart ambulance chasers on the table next.

  • Retired says:

    Did his victims have a choice as to how he treated them , time to throw these Lawyers out of the System trying to make a name for themselves . Maybe it is time to stop people from watching these executions .

  • Peter Smith says:

    Who gives one rat’s @ss how this F-ing murder died, or if it was in agony. What was the level of agony felt by the four people he admitted killing? His death was for their suffering and the suffering their families. F-ck the ignorant murder, he’s dead now and getting HIS final reward, in H3LL. Justice is served …

    First, he was likely out of it during this supposed “convulsion” time and unaware. Second, who cares if he was or was not? HE WAS A MASS MURDERER WHO DESERVED TO DIE, whether easy or hard.
