The legal advisor of the last prisoner of four to be executed in Arkansas on April 24, Shawn Nolan, has called for an investigation into the horrifying execution of the inmates since lately.

The execution of Kenneth Williams was said to be shocking by the witnesses, as the inmate convulsed, coughed, trembled, lurched and jerked about 15 times after he received the first of three lethal injections.

Williams’ last words were “I humbly extend my apologies to those families I have senselessly wronged”.

He was pronounced dead at 23.05 local time (05.05 BST), which “resulted in disturbing signs of distress on the part of the prisoner”, reports said.

The Republican governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, has rubbished the allegations and said, “I see no reason for any investigation other than the routine review that is done after every execution.”

The governor’s spokesman also said Williams’ movements were “an involuntary muscular reaction”, to be expected with midazolam — a sedative used in lethal injections.

The horrifying  execution of Kenneth Williams came after Jack Jones and Marcel Williams were executed using lethal injections on 24 April.

The first person to be put to death after 12 years without a single execution in the state was Ledell Lee, who was injected on 20 April.

“Press reports however,  state that within three minutes into the execution, our client began coughing, convulsing, jerking and lurching with sound that was audible even with the microphone turned off,” Nolan added.

The first person to be put to death after 12 years without a single execution in the state was Ledell Lee, who was injected on 20 April.

The European Union have condemned the horrifying execution as “an unacceptable denial of human rights”.

“Our concern is really the fact that these executions were scheduled because of the expiration date of the drug, and you are absolutely right that adds to the arbitrariness and cruelty of the whole process,” the spokeswoman of the UN Liz Throssell said who have also condemned the execution of the prisoners.
