I feel my whole body burning, says Oklahoma death row inmate during execution Published January 10, 2014 Associated Press
A man has been executed by lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary almost 20 years after orchestrating the brutal assault and robbery of his co-worker at a Tulsa convenience store.
Michael Lee Wilson, 38, was convicted in the killing of Richard Yost, 30, who aspired to one day manage the Quiktrip store. Wilson, who was convicted of first-degree murder, was the third person executed for the February 25, 1995, crime; the fourth defendant is serving a life term.

'Closure will be not hearing this on the news and reading about it in the paper,' the family said in a statement issued by Angela Houser-Yost, Yost's widow. 'That is my closure - not to relive his death over and over but to remember the good times.'
Before the crime, the men loitered nearly an hour while waiting for customers to leave. Once they were gone, they struck Yost with an aluminum baseball bat 54 times in 131 seconds. They jostled a safe while removing it, but Wilson posed as Yost when a security company called to check an alarm.
And to dampen suspicions among middle-of-the-night customers, Wilson put on Yost's uniform and worked the cash register as Yost lay dying in a pool of blood, beer and milk behind the cooler doors."

GOOD you pos demon... you now know what burning in hell is all about... BURN BABY BURN!
Perhaps one can feel the fires of hell before actually dying.
Feeling the first fires of Hell?
Annnnnnddddd, the problem with this is?
Maybe he’s feeling the flames of hell?
This dirtbag has a fiancee?
So, what is the problem?
” they struck Yost with an aluminum baseball bat 54 times in 131 seconds. “
THIS is why we need a mental health check before anyone can buy an aluminum bat.
Oddly enough, this story makes me feel pretty warm inside...
So happy he could already feel his body burning.
Get used to that feeling, pal! It's gonna be with you for a while.
It really gets me how many on here believe there is actually an eternal burning in physical hell fire.
Let it burn. Let it burn more.
Very common for death row inmates to attract women who will supply them with money in exchange for getting to play the victim.
There is a Delphi message board filled with such women.
Contrived sympathy fail.
Too damn bad.
Is that you Lazarus?
I think that if you really want Infernal Flames you can have them.
