Report makes 11 recommendations for executions

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Investigators have made 11 recommendations for how Oklahoma should handle future executions, including more training for medical personnel and having additional supplies on hand.

Thursday's report on the April 29 execution of Clayton Lockett says that due to manpower and facility concerns, Oklahoma shouldn't schedule an execution within seven days of each other. It also calls for more training for prison officials and medical personnel involved in executions.

Another recommendation calls for the Department of Corrections to have additional execution supplies on hand in case something goes wrong with the first set.

The report also says officials should contact the governor for a possible postponement if it takes more than one hour to insert an IV during an execution.
