Texas. A murderer was sentenced to death in America on Wednesday. But the process of punishment could not be completed within the stipulated time. Actually, the killer named Stephen Barbee, who was to be sentenced to death, could not find the nerves of his hands and neck. Poisonous injections were to be given in these veins. Therefore, there was a delay of 40 minutes in the completion of the death sentence. Please tell that in the year 2005, 55-year-old Stephen Barbee murdered his pregnant girlfriend and 7-year-old son.
According to the British newspaper Daily Mail, the nerves of Stephen’s hand and neck were not easily accessible because he was disabled. That is, he could not spread his arms properly. He was finally administered the lethal injection dose at 7.09 pm and was declared brought dead at 7.35 pm. Barbee’s lawyers called for a stay of execution because of the “intolerable pain and suffering” that he could have suffered in the normal way by extending the prisoner’s arms. But the Texas Attorney General rejected it.
use of lethal injection
Lethal injections contain pentobarbital, which can be used in small doses, but has been known to kill people in large doses. Barbee was the fifth inmate to be executed in Texas this year. So far, 15 people, including Barbie, have been executed by lethal injection across the United States in 2022. The total number of executions given by America this year is 4 more than last year.
death sentence in the past
Last week also a person was given death sentence in America. This 61-year-old man named Tracy Beatty had killed his mother about 20 years ago. And then the deadbody was buried in the garden.
