Arizona picks company to review Wood execution

PHOENIX (AP) _ The Arizona Department of Corrections has chosen a firm to
review its investigation of the nearly two-hour execution of Joseph Rudolph
Wood.

Carter Goble Lee will conduct a review of an investigation by the department’s
Inspector General. The company was formerly known as Carter Goble Associates and
specializes in assisting correctional facilities in planning and facility
development.

The company will look at the July 23 execution of Wood, who was convicted of
killing his ex-girlfriend and her father. Wood’s execution took nearly two
hours, prompting calls for an investigation. His attorney says the execution
was botched, a claim the department denies. He has also criticized the lack of
an independent investigation.

The department is not commenting while the review is ongoing. The proposed cost
by Carter Goble Lee is $62,680.
