Attorneys in a potential death penalty case are arguing that if their client is convicted they should be able to describe in detail to jurors considering lethal injection how their client would die.
They want to tell jurors in Jefferson County that the drugs used for lethal injection could cause Crawley to writhe and gasp similar to reactions by two men executed in the U.S. this year. The newspaper reports the request is the first of its kind in Kentucky.
Crawley is charged with killing her grandmother.
