FLAMES ERUPT FROM INMATE`S MASK
DURING FLORIDA EXECUTION.
March 25. 1997
Witnesses and prison officials said
a 6-inch flame arose from the right side
of Medina`s black leather face mask
during the execution.
flickering for several seconds
and filling the room with smoke
and the smell of burning flesh.
He was executed despite his claims of innocence
and mental illness,
pleas of mercy from the daughter of the victim
and a letter from the pope.
Judge Soud ruled in April 1997
that problems with the chair had been fixed,
and any future executions would be constitutional.
He said he was convinced that Medina felt
no unnecessary pain.
Medina`s lawyer, Marty Mc Clain,
said this after the execution:
"Florida should discontinue (use of the electric chair)
There is a growing trend.
About eight states have stopped using the electric chair.
There are only three states that use it on a regular basis.
They`re in Florida, Georgia and Alabama,
and I think it should be stopped."
DEATH BY ELECTROCUTION
An inquiry was held after
this gruesom incident
thatoutraged people all over the world.
As a result of this incident,
hearings were held in a north Florida courtroom
on behalf of Leo Jones,
who was to be executed April 15 1997.
defense attorneyMartin McClain said:
" The sole issue to be determined is
whether the electric chair in its present condition
is cruel and unusual punishment."
Jones` attorneys are focusing on theMedina execution,
during which flames shot out from behind his face mask.
Witnesses testified that his body jolted
for several minutes after
the electricity was turned off.
Jones execution was on hold
until the court has resolvedLeo Jones complaint
that the electric chair amounts to cruel
and unusual punishment,
a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Jones` attorneys won a continuation
of the hearing from theFlorida Supreme Court,
which ruled thatSoud did not allow them
to call expert witnesses.
IT IS POSSIBLE
testified Dr. Jonathan Arden,
first deputy chief medical examiner of New York City,
at the hearing.
Another forensic pathologist said
any sign of breathing by Medina
would indicate the brain was still working.
Arden said there was little doubt that
Medina was still alive.
