The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals agreed Thursday to a six-month stay of execution for a death row inmate while an investigation is conducted into last week's botched lethal injection.
The court reset the execution date of inmate Charles Warner to Nov. 13. Warner's attorneys requested the delay, and state Attorney General Scott Pruitt said in a court filing Thursday he wouldn't object.
While the stay only applies to Warner, the attorney general and governor have said Oklahoma will not carry out any executions until the investigation is finished, which is expected to take at least eight weeks.

It wasn't botched -- the guy is dead.
There are other more reliable execution methods they could use while they investigate this specific execution.
Can't be that much.
(2) States that have the death penalty seek out alternatives
(3) Said alternatives cause unintended consequences
(4) Leftists then call for the abolition of the death penalty because "it's cruel"
(5) States cave, as usual
All by design folks...all by design.
Why can’t they use what Dr. Kervorkian uses? They said he is a saint.
The POS raped and murdered an eleven month old!
I've read stories on how the prisoners would completely go insane, knowing that they're going to be beheaded. Can you imagine the abject panic, despair that one feels knowing their head is going to be chopped off. And the head continues to scream obscenities for several nano-seconds!
It could be turned into a reality show to pay for prison expenses.
