OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An attorney for a death row inmate who died after a botched execution last week says he is seeking a second independent autopsy of his client.

Attorney David Autry said Tuesday he has requested a second autopsy be conducted on Clayton Lockett. Lockett writhed on the gurney and moaned during an execution that was initially called off after a doctor determined some of the lethal drugs never made it into Lockett’s system. He died anyway 43 minutes after the execution began from an apparent heart attack.

The Oklahoma medical examiner’s office had Lockett’s body sent to Dallas for independent autopsy that is expected to be finished in eight to 12 weeks.

Autry also has called for a U.S. Justice Department probe into Lockett’s execution.
