The hearing into whether Kentucky's Lethal Injection death penalty amounts to cruel punishment continues.
Two death row inmates say the constitution protects them from the state's injection procedure.
They claim the anesthetic administered with the lethal injection leaves a person conscious enough to feel excruciating pain.
Carol Weihrer from the Anesthesia Awareness Campaign says she was under the same drugs during an eye surgery and could feel and hear everything.
The court will hold hearings for the next two months.
