This undated photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections shows 540 pounds of weights placed on the execution table at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio to test the table's load bearing. Ohio death row inmate Ronald Post, scheduled for execution Jan. 16, 2013, is arguing that, at 450 pounds, can not be humanely executed under both the state's usual method and the untested backup procedure.
