"Oh, No It Won't..."

Richard Cooey, who weighed 267-pounds (121-kilograms), had argued in numerous legal challenges that his weight problem would make it difficult for prison staff to find suitable veins to deliver the deadly chemicals, a problem that had delayed previous executions in the state.
Could have saved themselves a lot of effort if they'd just used the Gary Gilmore method instead...

I had to work out what his weight was in Stones and Pounds. Why can't the Americans cope with two units of the same subject (well, apart from Dollars and Cents anyway)?

Anyway, what sort of name is "coo-ee"?

Couldn't they have done his lawyers at the same time?
