A medical examiner has released some early autopsy results from the man executed by the state of Arizona last week. Some witnesses say Joseph Wood's execution was botched. One eyewitness claims it took wood two hours to die, after receiving his lethal injection. Another eyewitness said Wood was gasping for more than 90 minutes. Pima County Medical Examiner Gregory Hess says catheters were put in the correct veins for the execution. The official autopsy report is still pending toxicology results. But Hess says as long as there are no odd results, he will rule Wood died of lethal injection. He also says he did not find anything to explain how long it took Wood to die.
