A Ten Commandants monument is seen in a fenced-off section of the Oklahoma Capitol grounds in Oklahoma City Sept. 30, 2015. The state executed death-row inmate John Marion Grant by lethal injection Oct. 28, 2021. Witnesses said Grant, who was convicted in 2000 of first-degree murder, died vomiting and convulsing. It was Oklahoma's first execution since 2015. (CNS photo/Jon Herskovitz, Reuters)
