Final Justice in Oklahoma
Charles Frederick Warner’s execution for the 1997 killing of an 11-month-old girl in Oklahoma City lasted 18 minutes. Prison officials declared him dead at 7:28 p.m. CST.
“Before I give my final statement, I’ll tell you they poked me five times. It hurt. It feels like acid,” Warner said before his execution began. He added, “I’m not a monster. I didn’t do everything they said I did.”
After the first drug, the sedative midazolam, was administered and a microphone inside the death chamber was turned off, Warner said, “My body is on fire.” But he showed no obvious signs of distress.
Witnesses said they saw slight twitching in Warner’s neck about three minutes after the lethal injection started. The twitching lasted about seven minutes until he stopped breathing.
The young girl would be 17 years old now, if this scum had not raped and murdered her.
Gov. Mary Fallin’s comment sums up this case, and the certain finality that Warner will be permanently removed from the human gene pool:
“Justice was served tonight as the state executed Charles Warner for the heinous crime of raping and murdering an infant,”
Taking out the garbage, indeed.
