MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An attorney says Alabama will not make another attempt to execute an ailing inmate who had his lethal injection halted when the team could not find a usable vein.
Attorney Bernard Harcourt said Tuesday that the state will not seek a second execution date for Doyle Lee Hamm under a settlement reached Monday to end ongoing litigation.
Harcourt wrote in an email that the settlement terms were confidential, but will end efforts to set another execution date.
The Alabama attorney general's office did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.
Hamm has battled lymphoma and hepatitis. The state called off Hamm's execution last month after several failed attempts to connect an intravenous line.
Hamm was given a death sentence for the 1987 slaying of a motel clerk.
