Oklahoma carries out first execution since April's botched one
January 16 , 2015
The US state of Oklahoma has carried out its first execution since April’s botched execution of Clayton Lockett.
Charles Warner, convicted for the rape and murder of an 11-month-old girl, was executed on Thursday night, January 15, according to media reports.
The attorneys for Warner and three other inmates from Oklahoma had asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay, but the court declined the request.
Warner was scheduled to be executed in April, but his execution was called off after Lockett’s botched lethal injection.
