Federal Execution Methods Challenged

     FRANKFORT, KY. (CN) – A Death Row inmate claims Kentucky’s method of execution is cruel and unusual. Gregory Wilson claims the sedative the state administers before the lethal injection interferes with the killing drugs and could make the killing “excruciating and unnecessarily painful and protracted”; and he says that prisoners cannot make an “intelligent choice” between electrocution or lethal injection because the state refuses to give them the “opportunity to review the entire execution process for both methods.” See complaint.
