United States. A new sentence of death has been followed out.

According to the press agency AGI, «Georgia’s authorities followed out the first execution in the United States after the dramatic sequence of events» around the «death penalty» – in Oklahoma, at the end of April – of «Clayton Lockett». The latter died «43 minutes after the injection of a lethal cocktail» and the polemics were numerous.

«Marcus Wellons, 59 years old, who had murdered a teenager, died just before midnight on Tuesday in the penitentiary of Jackson in Georgia, after a one-drug lethal injection» (agi.it).
