For the first time since 2005, and thanks to Lundbeck, Delaware executed Robert Jackson III. He died proclaiming his innocence. The A.P. reports:
“When the execution began, Jackson started making a snoring sound, his lips sputtered and his breath began to quicken. Prison officials closed the curtain between the execution chamber and witnesses after about four minutes to check whether he was conscious, calling out twice, “Inmate Jackson, can you hear me?” There was no response. When the curtain reopened a minute later, Jackson made no more movements or sounds. From start to finish, the execution took about 10 minutes.”
Lundbeck is now responsible for 23 of the 31 executions carried out so far in the United States since December 2010.
Two more patients await Lundbeck’s treatment in August 2011:
Martin Robles, Texas, August 10, 2011
Jerry Jackson, Virginia, August 18, 2011
