McALESTER — The former warden of Oklahoma State Penitentiary said the execution of Clayton Lockett wasn’t “botched,” as many have claimed, and says any problems were caused in part by the inmate’s own actions, the Edmond Sun reports.



“It was an untimely execution,” said Randall Workman, who retired as warden in 2012. “It worked. He died. The bottom line is the drugs did what they were supposed to do. They killed him.”

Workman said Lockett contributed to his own troubles by probably fasting and cutting himself to complicate the execution.
