UPDATE: Slain Woman's Sister: McGuire Treated More Humanely Than His Victim

LUCASVILLE -- Carol Avery, the sister of 22-year-old Joy Stewart, who was murdered in 1989, says her family members are Christians and believe in forgiveness. They have forgiven 53-year-old Dennis McGuire for the murder of Joy and her unborn child. However, that forgiveness did not negate the need for him to pay for his actions.

Avery said her sister suffered terror and pain and was treated more humanely as a death row inmate than he treated Joy.

It was time, Avery said, that McGuire face justice.

UPDATE: McGuire Execution Took About 25 Minutes (WITH TIMELINE)

LUCASVILLE -- ABC 22/FOX 45 reporter Sheila Gray witnessed this morning's execution of Dennis McGuire. The process was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. but didn't begin until about 15 minutes later.

Sheila Gray said it was about 25 minutes from the time of injection to the pronouncement of McGuire's death.

She said it was at least five minutes between the time he last moved and the pronouncement of death.

McGuire Executed with new Lethal Drug Combo

LUCASVILLE (AP) -- A condemned Ohio killer appeared to gasp several times during his prolonged execution with the first use of a never-tried lethal injection process never before tried in the U.S.

Death row inmate Dennis McGuire made several loud snorting or snoring sounds during the more than 15 minutes it appeared to take him to die.

It was one of the longest executions since Ohio resumed capital punishment in 1999.

McGuire's stomach rose and fell several times as he repeatedly opened and shut his mouth.

McGuire's adult children sobbed a few feet away in a witness room as they watched him die.

McGuire was sentenced to die for the death of 22-year-old Joy Stewart in Preble County in western Ohio.
