The wheels of justice turn slowly sometimes.
It sounds like this murderer was allergic to execution.
WASHINGTON — Darryl Durr, 46, was executed Tuesday in Ohio for the 1988 rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl after the Supreme Court rejected a flurry of final appeals, including one claiming he was allergic to certain anesthetics.
Durr, an African American, was 24 years old at the time of the rape and murder in January 1988 of a 16 year old girl, a friend of the mother of his baby.
The victim's body was found three months later hidden in a ditch, and Durr was identified as the killer eight months later by his girlfriend, who said he raped and strangled the teenager with a dog leash. Source AFP
