Dennis McGuire kidnapped, raped and murdered a pregnant woman back in 1989, yesterday he was finally put to death.
The only reason it's news today is because the state of Ohio ran out of pentobarbitol, the drug normally used for executions. The company that manufactures it refused to sell it any more for the purpose of execution. So Ohio used a new combination of drugs that were untested on humans.
Aparently it took awhile for McGuire to die, 10 or 15 minutes. His family is agonizing over the whole situation.
I wonder how much agony his victim and family endured.
