Oklahoma executionAn Oklahoma death row inmate died of a heart attack Tuesday night more than 40 minutes after his execution was halted because the lethal injection of three drugs was botched.

The execution of a second convicted murderer was postponed.

Corrections Director Robert Patton halted the execution of Clayton Lockett about 20 minutes after the first drug was administered, the Associated Press reported. He said there was a vein failure that prevented the deadly chemicals from reaching Lockett.

Witnesses said Lockett writhed and convulsed on the gurney, shaking uncontrollably.

Patton said he died after receiving all three drugs.

The 38-year-old Lockett, who was convicted of shooting 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman and watching two accomplices bury her alive in 1999, was pronounced dead in the execution chamber at 7:06 p.m. CT.

The execution began at 6:23 p.m., and he was unconscious 10 minutes later. His death came 43 minutes after the drugs began flowing.
