Arizona killer was given two doses of drugs in drawn-out execution

Joseph Wood is pictured in this undated handout booking photoBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Arizona executioners had to administer at least two full doses of a two-drug lethal injection cocktail to a convicted killer before he finally succumbed nearly two hours after his execution began, the state's assistant attorney general said on Thursday. Arizona's governor has promised an internal review, but said justice had been done with the execution of Joseph Wood. "The IV team, which includes a licensed medical doctor, verified multiple times during the procedure that the inmate was comatose and never in pain," Charles Ryan, director of Arizona's Department of Corrections, said in a statement. The complications in putting Wood to death, which came after two other lethal injections went awry earlier this year in Ohio and Oklahoma, renewed debate over the U.S. death penalty and prompted the state to suspend further executions pending an internal review.
