121 Kg is fat but not amazing fat by american standards. He should have bulked up to double that if he had any hope of using obesity as a deterrent to execution. Whatever, I guess Ohio is saving some money on food rations now that he's gone. No sympathy except for his victim.

He obviously thought that the authorities were joking when they threatened to use a horse syringe.

I really don't see why he couldn't just be shot if that's what he prefered.

Too messy to shoot him. But I hear he was blubbering the whole time.

Cooey argued that it would be inhuman to kill him. But he didn't kill those students humanely.

"Three of Cooey's lawyers"

How many lawyers did he have?
