      Corrections Director Received Death Threats After Botched Execution

      The Department of Corrections is beefing up security after the agency's director received death threats following a botched execution.

      Officials say since the execution of Clayton Lockett in April, Director Robert has received threatening phone calls and emails.

      Patton has body guards when he travels and a bullet-resistant car.

      DOC officials say they purchased the vehicle after Colorado's corrections director was shot to death last year.
