Execution Witness: Inmate Appeared 'In Pain'

Oklahoma inmate Clayton Lockett grimaced, clenched his jaw and jerked his body in the moments a lethal injection drug was administered to him Tuesday night about three minutes after he was supposedly unconscious during his execution, according to a journalist who witnessed the chaos. The troubling scene forced corrections officials to halt the execution, although Lockett was pronounced dead a half-hour later from a heart attack. Oklahoma said it is reviewing what happened.
