OKLAHOMA EXECUTION
Lawyers for Oklahoma inmate whose execution was postponed seek 6-month stay as rules reviewed

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, May 5, 2014 2:52 PM EDT
OKLAHOMA CITY


Attorneys for an Oklahoma inmate who had been set to be put to death the same night as a botched execution are asking the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to grant a stay for at least six months pending a review into what went wrong last week.

Attorneys for Charles Warner filed the emergency application Monday, citing last week's execution of Clayton Lockett, who writhed on the gurney and moaned before being pronounced dead of an apparent heart attack 43 minutes after the execution began.

Warner was convicted of raping and killing an 11-month-old in 1997. He has maintained his innocence.

He was scheduled to die last week two hours after Lockett, but Gov. Mary Fallin issued a two-week stay pending a thorough inquiry into Lockett's execution.
