Execution commission meets for second time
TALLAHASSEE – A commission hears more testimony today on Florida’s method for executing prisoners.
The Governor’s Commission on the Administration of Lethal Injection meets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tampa Airport Marriott.
An autopsy showed the needles used in the execution pushed through his veins and delivered the deadly cocktail of drugs into his soft tissue, slowing their absorption and possibly causing pain.
The commission held it’s first meeting Jan. 29.
Commissioners must meet at least three times before issuing their recommendations.
