Suffering from Lethal Injections Calls Oklahoma Secrecy Statute into Light
Suanna Gattoni is now representing not only Clayton Lockett, whose scheduled execution ended badly, but Charles Warner, the next inmate in line to die on Oklahoma's death row. The country is in uproar over the two men's executions that went poorly after being injected with a new drug cocktail that's source is being hidden by the state. During one execution, the man said, "I feel my whole body burning." Warner's planned execution for next week has been pushed back six months. Gattoni is arguing that the 2011 secrecy statute presents legal problems for clients wanting to make constitutional claims of execution methods being cruel and unusual.
