Those Who Died
McVeigh, 33, will be moved from the cell to the execution chamber a few feet away by 7 a.m. today. He will be put to death by an injection of three poisons.
McVeigh was removed from death row at 4:10 a.m. Sunday and taken in a white van with barricaded windows to the execution facility, just west of the main building. Guards wearing bullet-proof vests walked alongside the van for the short trip. He was inside the holding cell by 4:30 a.m.
"Inmate McVeigh was cooperative, and the movement occurred without incident, prison officials said.
The transfer was McVeigh's last time outdoors. Nigh said McVeigh "was able to look up in the sky for the first time in a number of years and see the moon.
"That was very valuable to him.
Another attorney, Nathan Chambers, said McVeigh even slept a couple of hours after the move and planned to sleep again before the execution.
For his "official final meal, at noon Sunday, McVeigh had two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
