Andrew DeYoung was put to death by lethal injection Thursday night at the state prison in Jackson after courts turned down his appeals.
The 37-year-old was pronounced dead at 8:04 p.m. DeYoung blinked his eyes and swallowed for about two minutes, then his eyes closed and he became still.
The execution was set for Wednesday but was pushed back a day as the state tried to block the video recording. It was requested by another death row inmate seeking evidence of problems with Georgia’s reconfigured lethal injection procedure.
A video camera and a camera operator were in place for the execution.
