Federal public defender Carol Wright, second from right, briefs other attorneys and members of a team representing condemned inmate Gary Otte following Otte's execution on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, in Lucasville, Ohio. Wright, who witnessed the execution, believes Otte's rising and falling stomach indicated he was suffering from a phenomenon known as "air hunger" and she tried unsuccessfully to leave the witness room and alert a federal judge. She said the judge declined to stop the procedure, though it was likely too late at that point. (AP Photo/Andrew Welsh-Huggins)
