It was one of the longest executions since Ohio resumed capital punishment in 1999.  McGuire’s stomach rose and fell several times as he repeatedly opened and shut his mouth.  McGuire’s adult children sobbed a few feet away in a witness room as they watch him die.  McGuire was sentenced to die for the death of 22-year-old Joy Stewart in Preble County is western Ohio
