A federal judge on Thursday declined to delay the upcoming executions of two Arizona death-row inmates over arguments that a new execution protocol violates their constitutional rights.

U.S. District Judge Neil Wake ruled that the Arizona Department of Corrections' new execution protocol, released last month, does not pose a substantial risk of subjecting either inmate to cruel and unusual punishment, as their attorneys argued it would.

Attorneys plan to appeal his ruling Thursday to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

Moormann, 63, has been on death row for 27 years for the brutal killing and dismemberment of his 74-year-old adoptive mother Roberta while on a three-day "compassionate" furlough from the same prison where he's set to be executed on Wednesday. He had been serving a life sentence for kidnapping an 8-year-old girl in 1972.

How about they give an injection to the nimrod who let Moormann out on "compassionate" leave?

Why did it take 27 years to decide to get the job done that should have been done 26 years ago.

Taxes have been feeding this POS for 27 years when he could have been put down with two 15 cent bullets in the back of the head.
