In related news: We're getting new documents that shed light on what exactly happened when Oklahoma executed Clayton Lockett. The documents were released as part of a court hearing weighing the constitutionality of the state's execution process.
As the Tulsa World Herald reports, at the time of the execution, officials disputed the accounts of reporters who saw Lockett writhing and jerking. But testimony made public earlier this week described the execution as "a bloody mess."
The Herald adds:
"Another witness said the scene 'was like a horror movie' as Lockett was bucking and attempting to raise himself off the gurney when he was supposed to be unconscious and dying.
"The paramedic who struggled to start numerous IVs that night told state investigators that 'the process that day as a whole' was 'a cluster.' "
