Double murderer Joseph Rudolph Wood is executed by lethal injection at the age of 56 in Arizona State Prison Complex, 1305 E Butte Avenue, Florence, Arizona, United States.

Wood was executed with a combination of midazolam and hydromorphone. The execution began at 1:52 p.m. and ended at 3:49 p.m. when Wood was pronounced dead. Wood gasped and snorted for well over an hour, and a media witness compared Wood's breathing to a "fish gulping for air". An Associated Press reporter said Wood gasped more than 600 times.
