The 39-year-old was convicted of brutally killing a Richmond family in 2006.Gray’s attorneys said yesterday that officials have provided “no plausible explanation” for why the process of inserting the IV took about 30 minutes, which is longer than usual.

She told The Richmond Times-Dispatch the delay was due to difficulty in placing the IV line in a vein.
