The Arkansas Department of Correction has released its internal affairs log related to the execution of Ledell Lee on April 20.

It’s a catalog of all the mundane details related to Lee’s last hours.


At 2:44 p.m., he took communion followed by a meal of fruit punch, four slices of bread, two cinnamon rolls, stewed tomatoes, sweet rice, pinto beans, two pieces of fried chicken and corn. He finished at 2:48 p.m.

He dressed in clean whites in one minute, beginning at 6:18 p.m.


It took 12 minutes for intravenous catheters to be inserted, beginning at 11:27 p.m., just minutes after the U.S. Supreme Court lifted its stay on the execution.

The chemicals were administered at 11:45 p.m.


The coroner pronounced the time of death at 11:56 p.m.

Two more executions are scheduled for Monday and a third on Thursday.
