Execution of sick US inmate postponed over IV failure

Execution of sick US inmate postponed over IV failureThe execution of a sick US inmate was postponed Wednesday after prison officials could not find a viable vein to inject lethal drugs. Local media who had come to attend the execution of Alva Campbell in the state of Ohio reported that there were multiple unsuccessful attempts to find a usable vein over a period of approximately 20 minutes. Campbell’s lawyers had argued the 69-year-old was too ill to be executed.
