Why do death penalty convictions take so long to carry out?


I know that I'm talking about an almost extinct institution. And I do not want to get into a huge debate about it's moral/ethical relevance. But in the cases where people are put on death row; why does it take so long (a decade or more) for the accused to be put to death?
