Botched execution issues continue

Oklahoma City, OK -  More backlash continues from the botched execution of an Oklahoma inmate. Attorneys for the state of Oklahoma have until tomorrow to respond to a death row inmate's request for at least a six-month delay of his scheduled execution pending a review into the state's botched execution last week.  

The Oklahoma court of criminal appeals directed the state to respond to the request by inmate Charles Warner, who currently is scheduled to be put to death by lethal next Tuesday, for the 1997 killing of an 11-month-old. Warner's attorneys contend the state can not quote "ensure a humane, constitutional execution.''

Both governor Mary Fallin and attorney general Scott Pruitt have said they do not believe any executions should go forward until the state has conducted a thorough review into last week's execution of Clayton Lockett. Lockett's attorney is also seeking a 2nd autopsy as his execution remains an on-going investigation.
