Florida Department Of Corrections, John Ruthell

An inmate from Florida State Prison, convicted for the 30-year-old murder of his wife and his wife’s 5-year-old son from a previous marriage per Tech Times. He became the third man to be executed in 24 hours in the U.S.

His lawyer’s attempted to intervene with a last minute appeal; however John Ruthell Henry, 63, was declared dead Wednesday evening at 7:43 p.m., following a three-drug lethal injection.

Before his death, two others were also executed. Marcus Wellons was convicted for raping and murder 15-year-old India Roberts in the Cobb County. He was pronounced dead at 11:56 p.m. ET in Georgia. John Winfield was convicted for the death of two women from a shooting, said to be friends of his former girlfriend, whom he left blind after the shooting. He was also pronounced dead Wednesday at 12:01 am CT in Missouri.

The three death row inmates came after the botched execution by lethal injection of Clayton Lockett on April 29 in Oklahoma. Lockett’s death process lasted over 40 minutes because the executioner failed to insert the needle properly into locket’s vein. After the injection, Lockett was described as showing moments of pain for about 25 minutes, then went on to have a heart attack.

The incident was highly scrutinized by the general public and even received recognition from President Barrack Obama, citing that secrecy laws in execution are deemed unconstitutional and that drugs being used may be undependable. Under the laws, information on who administers the injection and where the state gets lethal injection drugs from are kept secret.

Lockett’s controversial death prompted several appeals being granted to those prisoners who sought not to suffer the same fate. After his death, there were no executions for two months, which drew people to speculate whether it was simply a matter of schedule or a result of the heated criticism.

Winfield and Welton’s lawyers tried to use the same argument to appeal their deaths, but the court rejected it.

    wow, not sure who wrote this, but maybe you should learn how to write?

  • Linda Warren

    There were specific drugs mentioned for lethal injections & since 1 is no longer available all deaths by lethal injection w/o that drug-mentioned by name-should be ruled unconstitutional .When this country becomes civilized-if it ever does-we will realize how revenge isn’t punishment & even 1 innocent person being “legally” murdered is too many . Abolish Capitol Punishment !
