"Jon Bruning says other crises have ‘diverted’ state from resolving lethal injection problems," is by Martha Stoddard of the Omaha World-Herald. Here's the beginning of this detailed article:
Attorney General Jon Bruning expects that another year will pass before Nebraska can be ready again to carry out its death penalty.
The state’s top justice official blames the delay on the shortage of execution drugs, the state prison sentencing fiasco and the November elections.
The three events combined to leave Nebraska without a means of executing the 11 men now on death row, he said.
They also have put efforts to find an alternative on hold.
“Death row is sort of in limbo today,” Bruning said. “I wish we had been prepared to try to provide the answer this summer and fall, but we ended up being diverted.”
