The Wilson execution prompted attorneys in two states to reach out to one of the execution witnesses seeking more information about the "burning" remark.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie says there are no plans to review the state's methods and added that neither Wilson nor Hogan appeared to be in any distress during their executions.
