California's new lethal injection chamber unveiled
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Officials at San Quentin State Prison are giving the public an inside look at the state's new lethal injection chamber ahead of California's first execution in nearly five years.
San Quentin officials unveiled the new room Tuesday. There are only two items in the room -- a gurney covered in green vinyl and a clock on the wall.
The room received the makeover after a federal judge ordered the chamber to be updated in 2006. The total cost for the room came out to $853,000.
The chamber is scheduled to be used for the first time next week when convicted murderer and rapist Albert Greenwood is put to death.
