    When the Supreme Court cleared the way for Alan Miller’s lethal injection on Thursday night, the triple-killer spent several hours believing he was about to die. But when the moment arrived, prison officials had difficulty accessing his veins and, with a midnight deadline looming, the decision was abruptly made to call the execution off. Miller, 57, was sentenced to death for murdering three men in a workplace shooting rampage in 1999. The choice to halt proceedings and send Miller back to his cell at around 11:30 p.m. came just hours after judges had determined that the execution should proceed. The Supreme Court overturned earlier decisions blocking the death sentence from being carried out over Miller’s request to be suffocated to death through nitrogen hypoxia—an as-yet untested method of execution that Alabama legalized in 2018. The state said it had no record of Miller ever making such a request, but Miller insists he signed a form asking to be killed by inhaling nitrogen gas because he is afraid of needles. “Due to time constraints resulting from the lateness of the...
    An Alabama man who was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection is still alive because officials could not find his vein before a midnight deadline to execute him. Alan Miller, 57, who was convicted in a 1999 of killing three people in workplace rampage, is now enjoying an unscheduled reprieve in his cell after prison officials made the decision at about 11:30pm. Alabama Corrections Commissioner John Hamm said the state halted the scheduled execution of Miller late Thursday after they determined they could not get the lethal injection underway before a midnight deadline for the death warrant.  'Due to time constraints resulting from the lateness of the court proceedings, the execution was called off once it was determined the condemned inmate's veins could not be accessed in accordance with our protocol before the expiration of the death warrant,' Hamm said.  The execution team at the Holman Correctional Facility began trying to establish intravenous access, but he did not know for how long. Miller had explained previously how he was afraid of needles. Mere hours before, Miller had tucked into a...

    U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker ruled that death row inmate Alan Eugene Miller should not be put to death unless it is by his chosen method A federal judge on Monday halted the scheduled lethal injection of an Alabama death row inmate, ruling that he 'likely faces irreparable injury' if he is not executed by his requested method. U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker issued a preliminary injunction blocking Alabama from putting Alan Eugene Miller, a delivery truck driver convicted of killing three co-workers in 1999, to death on September 22 as previously scheduled. The judge found that the state likely lost Miller's paperwork requesting to be executed by nitrogen hypoxia - a supposedly more humane method akin to suffocation - which Alabama has authorized but not yet implemented.  An Alabama jury took 20 minutes to convict, in a 10 to 2 vote, in July 2000 and decided that put Miller should be put to death. Two appeals of the verdict were denied. 'Miller will likely suffer irreparable injury if an injunction does not issue because he will be...
    An inmate in Alabama has been saved from his scheduled execution via lethal injection after he maintained the state lost paperwork he filed requesting a different method of execution. U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker Jr. blocked the state of Alabama from carrying out the execution of Alan Miller Monday and said the execution can only proceed if it is done via nitrogen hypoxia, according to a report. Death by nitrogen hypoxia would see Miller breathe in pure nitrogen, causing him to be deprived of oxygen and lead to his death. ALABAMA COULD USE NEW UNTESTED METHOD FOR EXECUTION OF PRISONER The method reportedly remains untested, and the state of Alabama maintains that it is not prepared to implement it.

    The state of Alabama is currently deciding whether to execute Alan Eugene Miller with the untested method of nitrogen hypoxia rather than traditional methods. The method was signed into law in 2018 by Gov. Kay Ivey (R) after the state had problems with lethal injections and wanted alternatives, according to the Associated Press. It has also been approved for use in Oklahoma and Mississippi. COUNTRY LEGEND TEDDY GENTRY ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES Death by nitrogen hypoxia would have the prisoner breathe in pure nitrogen, which would cause the prisoner to be deprived of oxygen and lead to his or her death. The method is untested and has not been used in any of the states it is approved for, according to CBS News. Miller claimed he signed a document in 2018 saying he would prefer to be executed by nitrogen hypoxia rather than lethal injection because of his fear of needles, according to reports. “I did not want to be stabbed with a needle,” Miller said while testifying to a U.S. district judge. The...
    Prosecutors argued Miller was trying to delay his execution. Houts told the judge that the state had tried to fit Miller with a mask in preparation for execution by nitrogen, but Miller declined. One of Miller’s attorneys, Mara Klebaner, said she does not want Miller used as a “test case” with an “untested protocol” if the state’s nitrogen hypoxia protocol is not final. Oklahoma and Mississippi are the two other states that have authorized execution by nitrogen hypoxia. Russell Bucklew, a man incarcerated in Missouri, attempted to get approved for nitrogen hypoxia; his request was denied in a lawsuit that went to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Neil Gorsuch stated that the method could not be used because nitrogen hypoxia was untested and could not be properly prepared. Miller, 57, was convicted of killing three men in a workplace shooting spree in August 1999.
    Alan Eugene Miller says the state lost the paperwork he turned in selecting the alternate execution method of Nitrogen hypoxia Alabama could be ready to use a new, untried execution method called nitrogen hypoxia to carry out a death sentence later this month, a state attorney told a federal judge on Monday. James Houts, a deputy state attorney general, told U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker Jr. that it is 'very likely' the method will be available for the execution of Alan Eugene Miller, currently set for September 22 by lethal injection. The final decision on whether to use the new method is up to Corrections Commissioner John Hamm, he said, and litigation is likely. While lethal injection is Alabama's primary execution method, the state in 2018 approved an untried method, nitrogen hypoxia, as an alternative amid mounting questions over lethal injection.  State law gave inmates a brief window of time in which to designate hypoxia it as their preferred execution method.  In a federal lawsuit filed last month attorneys argued Miller turned in a form selecting nitrogen, but the...
    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A mentally disturbed truck driver convicted of killing three men in a workplace shooting rampage more than two decades ago is set to be put to death on Sept. 22, the Alabama Supreme Court said Monday. The clerk’s office announced the scheduled execution date of Alan Eugene Miller, 57, who was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in the slayings, which occurred in Shelby County in 1999. Miller could still mount a legal challenge to block his planned execution by lethal injection at Holman Prison in Atmore. While the prison system has said it is developing nitrogen hypoxia as an alternative way to put people to death, the state isn’t yet setting execution dates for inmates who choose that untested method. An executive entering Ferguson Enterprises in Pelham on Aug. 5, 1999, heard noises and saw Miller, a delivery driver, leaving before finding Lee Holdbrooks and Scott Yancy fatally wounded inside, court documents show. Miller drove off and then showed up a few miles (kilometers) away at Post Airgas, where Terry Jarvis was killed...
