‘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.

"Yost's family denied an interview request but issued a statement noting the third of three executions was behind them.

'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."

Perhaps one can feel the fires of hell before actually dying.

” 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.

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.

I always thought the most just way of executing murderers is to make them endure what they put their victim through, and if the victim’s family is willing to participate, all the better.

I’d be interested in hearing your perspective. Skeptical of Scripture generally? Or a believer who doesn’t think God is “mean” enough to allow this? Or do you believe that references to Hell are not meant literally but as sybolic representations of a deeper Truth? Or something else?

"... they struck Yost with an aluminum baseball bat 54 times in 131 seconds."

I suspect the reason he felt his "whole body burning" wasn't because of the execution but of the things to come.

What gets you about that idea? It's certainly logical and Biblical. People don't want water in hell because it feels balmy. (see the story of Lazarus and the rich man)

Here come the attorneys to stop all lethal injection executions. I just don’t know why a single bullet from a rifle is not used instead of all this liberal crap where they look for something to hang their tin-foil hat on. Shoot the bastard. Swift, clean, same result.

Yeow. Must have passed on the last chance, "Deathbed conversion" offer.

I'm told ultimate consequences go better with mercy and forgiveness and that Body and Blood are the best last meal.

Not indicated in this very explicit account of death and the first conscious impressions (see Luke 16:19-31):

22 ...the rich man also died , and was buried ; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said , Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

He is aware of his torments when he opens his eyes in hell, not in some Hollywood inspired simultaneous"two-world" phenomenon.

“Contrived sympathy fail.”

Probably done at the direction of lawyers who argue lethal injection causes pain for use in future suits vs. execution.
