Arizona execution 'nothing', say victim's family

US death row inmate Joseph Wood has died after an execution in Arizona that took nearly two hours to kill him.

Wood, a double murderer, was executed by lethal injection.

His lawyers filed an appeal for an emergency stay of execution, after he had been "gasping and snorting for more than an hour" in the death chamber.

But relatives of Wood's victims said their suffering had been worse since the murders of their loved ones in 1989.
