Ronald Phillips is slated to be executed by the state of Ohio next Wednesday, July 26. It would be the state's first execution in three years after a series of legal and governmental delays after the last execution, of Dennis McGuire, during which the state used an untested cocktail of drugs, including midazolam, and which led to what witnesses described as
gasping and choking during the 26 minutes it took McGuire to die.
