Igor Hamilton, a prisoner on death-row in the United States, will be released after he survived three lethal injections.
Hamilton, who was sentenced to death in 1997 for killing his neighbor’s cats, said the needle was not painful.
The convict’s attorney, Edward Morningwood, said his client had undergone the lethal injection required by law in Texas.
The lethal injection was supposed to be a quick death, but Igor survived.
“It’s just not his time to go,” Morningwood argues.
According to Hamilton, he had hoped that the lethal injection would end his suffering in the prison, but he survived and is excited about his second chance at life.
He claimed to have found God while in prison, and spoked to him in prayers. He said God assured him that he would not die through the injections.
The inmate insisted that cats have no soul, and he did not commit a crime.
He is set to be released by the end of November and will be awarded $250,000.
