James Coddinton was just awarded a stay of execution. James is on death row for killing his coworker Alan Hale back in 1997 because he refused to give James 50 for drug money.
This crime happened in the state of Ohlahoma and when James was sentenced to death, he chose firing squad as the method he wanted to due. Well now, the state no longer offers that method so he will be executed by lethal injection. He filed an appeal challenging the 3 drug concoction for the lethal injection execution and he was awarded a stay.
Let me know what you guys think. Back then some inmates chose their method of execution and nowadays there is no option other than lethal injection. Is that grounds for an appeal to you?
