First, convicted killer Juan Carlos Chavez’s veins were filled with fructose. Then, just a few hours later, those same veins were filled with midazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide, and potassium chloride.
Chavez earned his death sentence for a kidnap, rape, and murder in 1995. This well-deserved and long-overdue execution was carried out
tonight by the state of Florida using a new three-drug lethal injection
Prior to his execution, Juan Carlos Chavez ate a last meal
of ribeye steak, French fries, a mix of mangoes, bananas, and papaya,
strawberry ice cream, and mango juice.
