Robert and Janice Shaw: Glad the killer suffered

January 26, 2014 

Regarding “Unusual drug mix prolongs execution” (Jan. 17, Page A5): What a sob story. Let’s switch the name in this article from Dennis McGuire to (his victim) Joy Stewart and her unborn child with the same explanations that were used in the story about McGuire. It “could cause Joy to suffer” ... “agony and terror while trying to catch her breath.” Did it take her 25 minutes to die and 30 minutes for her baby? Did she make “loud snorting noises” as she gasped for air? We hope he suffered absolute terror! Good job, Ohio!
