22 years ago His Last Meal Was a Handcuff Key

Murderer Ponchai Kamau Wilkerson is executed by lethal injection at the age of 29 in Huntsville Prison, 815 12th Street, Huntsville, Texas, United States.

On the day of his execution Wilkerson refused to leave his cell at the Terrell Unit prison near Livingston. Guards were forced to use Mace-like gas and carry him to and from the death van that took him to the Hunstville Unit. After the drugs were administered Wilkerson spit out an inch-and-a-half universal handcuff and leg restraint key.
