The Death Row Inmate Who Survived Lethal Injection

Once someone is sentenced to death, it can take years before the ultimate punishment is actually administered. Some states get mired in so much red tape and so many appeals that prisoners who are sentenced to death actually die of natural causes before they can be executed. Ideally, once the death penalty is carried out, it's an act of finality. But what would happen if someone actually survived the state's attempt to end their life?

Texas Execution Delayed

HOUSTON (AP) — Another Texas inmate has had his execution delayed over claims the state is violating his religious freedom by not letting his spiritual adviser lay hands on him at the time of his lethal injection. Ruben Gutierrez had been set to be executed on Oct. 27 for fatally stabbing an 85-year-old Brownsville woman in 1998. But a judge on Wednesday granted a request by the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office to vacate the execution date. Prosecutors say the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming review of similar religious freedom issues made by inmate John Henry Ramirez will impact Gutierrez's case. The high court last week delayed Ramirez's execution. The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on Nov. 1.
