Oklahoma prison officials have changed their execution protocols after they botched the procedure on an inmate how ‘writhed and moaned for 43 minutes’ before being declared dead.

Officials have said they will use five-times the dose of sedative midazolam in future executions and reduce the number of media witnesses to the punishment from 12 to five.
