OHIO — Romell Brown, 60, is now only the second person in American history to survive an execution — except — Ohio wants to attempt to kill him once more. Botched executions are not exactly somethin new in America, but, the case of Brown is perhaps the most intricate of them all. Brown, was on trial and later death row for the 1984 murder and rape of a woman named Tryna Middleton.
Ohio state reportedly stopped his execution in 2009 after two hours of failed attempts at the hands of state-sponsored killers. Brown, was convicted in the case back to 1984 when he reportedly kidnapped and later killed Middleton on that fatal day when she was on her way home from a football match with her friends. The problem, er, then, was the fact that executioners couldn’t find a vein they could use for his death. Such, caused officials at the time to halt the execution entirely.
Officials are now jockeyin with the state’s system to put Broom back on formal death row with an official date for his death, as of now, one doesn’t exist.
