"State schedules executions of three more inmates," is the AP report, via the Muskosgee Daily Phoenix.
Execution dates have been set for three Oklahoma death-row inmates even as state officials continue to investigate what went wrong during a botched execution in April.
Death row inmates Charles Frederick Warner, Richard Eugene Glossip and John Marion Grant are scheduled to die by lethal injection within a four-week period later this year in spite of a federal lawsuit they and 18 other death row inmates have filed that challenges the way the state plans to execute them.
Attorneys for the inmates said they believe it is imprudent for the state to schedule executions when there is so much uncertainty about the protocols and lethal drugs that will be used — especially after trouble with executions here and elsewhere.
