Ohio executions may be in questions after a Thursday execution. An Ohio inmate gasped and took an unusually long time to die was” torture,” the man’s daughter said Friday in an announcement for her plans to file a lawsuit over her father’s death.

McGuire’s daughter, Amber McGuire, mentioned the “agony and terror” of watching her father die – using the same words the condemned man’s attorneys used in trying to stop his execution using a previously untried method of lethal injection per Chron.

“It was the most awful moment in my life to witness my dad’s execution,” she said in a statement ahead of the news conference. “I can’t think of any other way to describe it than torture.”

Defense attorney Jon Paul Rion, who is representing McGuire’s daughter, has said that the execution violated McGuire’s constitutional l right not to be treated or punished in a cruel or unusual way.

McGuire’s attorney Allen Bohnert called the convicted killer’s death “a failed, agonizing experiment” adding, “The people of the state of Ohio should be appalled at what was done here today in their names.”

It is probable the lawyers will use McGuire’s execution to challenge Ohio’s plans to execute another condemned Cleveland-are killer next month.

McGuire’s lawyer’s had tried last week to stop his execution, arguing that the untried method could lead to a medical phenomenon known as “air hunger” and could cause him to suffer “agony and terror” while struggling to catch his death.

McGuire, 53, made loud snorting noises during what is deemed as one of the longest executions since Ohio resumed capital punishment in 1999. Approximately 25 minutes passed between the time the lethal drugs began flowing and McGuire was pronounced dead at 10:53 a.m.

“I’m going to heaven. I’ll see you there when you come,” he said as he was strapped to the gurney in the death chamber.

With more Ohio executions planned for the very near future, controversy is sure to surround these as well.

    Did he suffer more than the person he killed or the family left behind?

    Why did she show up for her fathers execution? It’s not like a birthday party or something. From experience, I can tell you that the body does some strange things at death, including gasping for air. I submit it is highly unlikely he was ‘aware’ he was dying and was trying to ‘hang on’. But, as usual, let the lawsuits begin.
