COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A federal judge on Tuesday delayed next week's execution of cult leader Jeffrey Lundgren to allow him to join a lawsuit by five other death row inmates challenging the state's use of lethal injection.

In his request to join the lawsuit, Lundgren, 56, said he is at even greater risk of experiencing pain and suffering during the procedure than other inmates because he is overweight and diabetic.


Fine. He doesn't like lethal injection. Lets just chop his head off. It's cheap, quick, don't need a lot of training.....

This happened here in Washington years ago:
Mitchell Rupe -too fat to hang


Rupe was sentenced to die, but in 1994, a United States federal judge held that Rupe was too heavy to hang. Rupe was 400 pounds at the time, and the judge was concerned that execution by hanging could cause Rupe to be decapitated, which would constitute cruel and unusual punishment.
