Georgia Postpones Execution To Work Out Videotaping Details
Andrew DeYoung will just have to wait while they work out the details of the first execution to be videotaped since 1992.
The video recording was requested by attorneys for another Georgia death row inmate who wanted evidence to show that Georgia’s reconfigured three-drug lethal injection procedure does not adequately sedate the inmate.
State prosecutors opposed it because they said the inmates have failed to prove that the drug pentobarbital causes undue suffering, and because they worried it could open the door to more executions being recorded.
DeYoung was convicted of stabbing his parents and sister to death in 1993 in a plot to get the family’s money to start a business.
