State prison officials revised the lethal injection process in May. A federal judge temporarily halted executions in the state after finding that prison officials were inadequately trained and equipped to administer the three-drug cocktail during executions. Marin County Superior Court Judge Lynn O’Malley Taylor says prison officials bungled when they failed to treat the revised execution method as a new state regulation. That would have required public comment and the approval of the Office of Administrative Law. Taylor’s ruling is tentative. Government lawyers will get a chance Wednesday to change the judge’s mind during a court hearing.last_img read more

Littlerock, Highland meet with final playoff berth on the line

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Title time: Palmdale (7-0-2) can clinch a share of the Golden League championship tonight with a win over Knight. The Falcons boosted their title hopes with a 1-1 tie last Friday against Lancaster, which had lost only to Palmdale during the first round of league play. The Falcons were further aided by the Eagles’ loss Monday to Littlerock, which dropped Lancaster (5-2-2 in league) two games back with three games remaining. Wild ending: Palmdale and Quartz Hill on Wednesday put together one of this Golden League season’s most exciting eight-minute stretches of play. The teams tied 4-4 with four of the goals scored in the final eight minutes. Brandon Alfaro scored on a header to put Palmdale up 3-2 with eight minutes to go. Quartz Hill’s Travis Stenseth evened the score, and Cody Jenison followed by heading in a corner kick for the Rebels’ first lead of the night. A penalty in the closing seconds enabled Alfaro to score the final tying goal. Quartz Hill, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit, played most of the game down a man after receiving a first-half red card. The Golden League’s final boys’ soccer playoff berth could be decided tonight when defending champion Littlerock High plays host to Highland. Palmdale and Lancaster have all but clinched the top two spots, so the race for third is the only meaningful battle remaining a week remaining in the regular season. Littlerock is two points ahead of Highland with three games remaining. Momentum is on Littlerock’s side. The Lobos (4-2-2 Golden) on Monday defeated second-place Lancaster 3-1 and on Wednesday edged Antelope Valley 1-0. Highland (3-2-4) is coming off a 3-2 upset loss to Knight. Littlerock was the only Golden team to advance past the first round of the Southern Section playoffs last year, reaching the Div. I quarterfinals. Shut out again: Knight has yet to score in five games against Quartz Hill at the varsity level. Knight was blanked again Monday in a 2-0 loss to Quartz Hill. In the rankings: Palmdale moved up two spots to No. 3 in this week’s Div. I rankings. Paraclete is seventh in Div. V. Training camp: Quartz Hill’s Travis Stenseth is organizing a two-day soccer camp as part of his senior project. Players will be instructed by professionals from the Institute of Brazilian Futebol. The event is scheduled for Feb. 18-19 at the Pelona Vista Soccer Complex in Palmdale. For further information, contact Stenseth at (661) 722-8151.

Morales execution delayed after anesthesiologists withdraw

first_imgSAN QUENTIN – The planned execution of a man convicted of raping and murdering a 17-year-old girl was delayed until Tuesday night after two anesthesiologists refused to participate because of ethical concerns. With the execution scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, defense lawyers requested a stay from the federal judge who last week ordered San Quentin State Prison to have an anesthesiologist on hand to minimize Michael Angelo Morales’ pain as he was put to death by lethal injection. A second anesthesiologist was retained as a backup. Although U.S. District Judge Jeremy Fogel denied the motion, both anesthesiologists withdrew, citing ethical concerns raised by his ruling. The exact wording of the judge’s order was not immediately available, but the anesthesiologists issued a statement through the prison saying they were concerned about a requirement that they intervene in the event that Morales woke up or appeared to be in pain. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “Any such intervention would clearly be medically unethical,” said the doctors, who have not been identified. “As a result, we have withdrawn from participation in this current process.” The American Medical Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the California Medical Association all opposed the anesthesiologists’ participation as unethical and unprofessional. Prison officials rescheduled the execution for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and said they would employ a different technique: administering a fatal overdose of barbiturate in lieu of the three-drug cocktail typically used in lethal injections. Morales’ attorneys had argued that the three-part lethal injection cocktail used in California and 35 other states violated the Eighth Amendment prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. They said a prisoner would feel excruciating pain from the last two chemicals if he were not fully sedated. Fogel refused to derail the execution, but he gave prison officials two options: retain the doctors to ensure Morales would be properly anesthetized, or forgo the paralyzing and heart-stopping drugs and overdose him on a sedative. With the anesthesiologists withdrawing, prison officials said they would use the second option. Prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon said the prison has until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday to execute Morales. After that, the “death warrant” expires and officials would have to go back to the trial judge who imposed the death sentence in 1983 for another warrant. Seeking another warrant could prove difficult for the state, however, since the original sentencing judge, Charles McGrath, joined Morales this month in asking Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for clemency in the case. McGrath said he no longer believed the credibility of a jailhouse informant whose testimony helped land Morales on death row. Morales has admitted to the crime that put him on death row. In a petition for clemency that Schwarzenegger first turned down on Friday, Morales claimed that he killed Terri Winchell 25 years ago because he was high on PCP and alcohol. Morales was told of the delay and was “nonchalant,” Crittendon said. But Winchell’s relatives were visibly upset, he said. “There was a great deal of concern on their faces under the circumstances of some people that Michael Morales would not suffer,” Crittendon said. “They find that to be very disturbing.” Earlier Monday, Morales appeared to have exhausted his options for a reprieve after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider his claim and the governor for the second time denied a request for clemency. ___ Associated Press Writers David Kravets and Michelle Locke contributed to this story.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
