Miss. Judge Halts Lethal Injections Due to "Excrutiating" Pain During Executions


A federal judge in Mississippi on Tuesday ordered temporary halt to executions because two death row inmates say they face risks of excruciating pain during an execution.

The prisoners Ricky Chase and Richard Jordan filed a complaint in April, claiming the state´s three-drug cocktail is "cruel" and "unusual punishment".

Critics argue that pentobarbital and midazolam, two of the drugs Mississippi uses in its executions, don´t cause quick and pain-free deaths. According to the complaint, the third drug, potassium chloride, has a "burning" and "excrutiating" effect.
