He was convicted of killing 3 people in a shooting at his workplace in 1999.

An Alabama correctional facility on Thursday suspended the application of a lethal injection to a man convicted of a shooting in 1999, due to problems accessing his veins.

Alabama Correctional Commissioner John Hamm declared that prison officials called off the execution after determining that “inmate Alan Miller’s veins could not be accessed according to our protocol” before the midnight deadline to launch the execution. The inmate was later returned to his cell, Hamm said.

The halt to the execution came 3 hours after being authorized by the US Supreme Court. The decision lifted an injunction, granted after Miller’s lawyers argued that the State had lost its documentation to request that the execution It will be carried out by nitrogen hypoxia, a method allowed but never used before in the country.

Miller, 57, said he opted for nitrogen when the form was distributed on death row because he didn’t like needles. The man was convicted of killing 3 people in a shooting at his workplace in 1999, earning him the death penalty.
