Lawyers Say Execution Of Arkansas Inmate Jack Jones Was ‘Torturous And Inhumane’

One of two scheduled back-to-back executions in Arkansas on Monday night appeared “torturous and inhumane,” according to the lawyers of a second prisoner scheduled for lethal injection Monday night.

The lethal injections began at 7:06 p.m.
