"This is not justice, and this is not humane", Mike Brickner, the group's policy director, said in a statement.

Prison officials had been warned about Campbell's extensive health problems but said they were confident they could carry out the execution.

Activists who had gathered outside the facility to protest the execution filmed an empty hearse leaving Southern Ohio Correctional Facility after Campbell's scheduled time of death.

The execution of an American prisoner on death row had to be abandoned after prison officials in OH could not find a vein to deliver the lethal drugs.

Campbell spent Wednesday morning praying and watching TV, said JoEllen Smith, a prisons spokeswoman. The team tried for about 30 minutes to find an injection site before the execution was called off, according to media witnesses.

Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) Overbought but Is That a Sell Indicator?
The company reported $1.43 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $1.38 by $0.05. Tyson Foods, Inc .is a food company, which is engaged in offering chicken, beef and pork, as well as prepared foods.

In only the third time in United States history, an execution attempt on Alva Campbell was halted on Wednesday, November 15, after the process had begun when jail staff could not locate a vein in which to insert the IV containing a cocktail of deadly drugs.

At one point during the appeals process, Campbell suggested that a firing squad would be a better alternative, but that's not allowed under current OH law.

Stebbins had argued Campbell's medical conditions could make it hard to find suitable veins to inject.

Campbell's attorney said his client was overwhelmed by the experience.

Kasich, the Republican governor, earlier rejected clemency for Campbell, who has said he was abused as a child.

He was released from jail for the first time in 1992 after serving 20 years of a life sentence for killing a man in Cleveland. He carjacked the vehicle and drove around with the 18-year-old still in it for several hours, before shooting him twice in the head.

Ohio's failure to execute a condemned killer with poor veins despite multiple claims by the state that the veins were accessible will lead to new challenges of the state lethal injection process, death penalty experts predict. The state's botched execution of Dennis McGuire in 2014 has been attributed to the use of midazolam - great if you need a sedative for a medical procedure but unsuitable for executions.

Four attorneys will witness on behalf of Campbell.
