Lethal Injection Task Force

Lethal Injection Task Force

Monday, January 29, 2007 8:28:00 AM

Governor Crist is expected to be in Tampa today to be a part of the first meeting on how the state conducts lethal injections.

This is part of a task force set up by former Governor Bush to study the issue.

It all has to do with the death of Angel Diaz last month. He was put to death by injection but it took over a half hour for Diaz to die and he required two doses of the lethal chemicals.

The execution sparked outrage among death penalty critics and prompted the Governor to suspend all executions until an investigation is complete.
