Oklahoma revealed plans Tuesday to use an experimental mix of lethal injections from a secret source to execute two men later this month. Despite a ruling that secrecy around Oklahoma’s purchases of lethal injections is unconstitutional, the state’s attorney general’s office still won’t identify the source of the drugs.
Exhibits in Wednesday’s proceedings included documents from an exposé by Katie Fretland published last week in The Colorado Independent. Emails in the document referred to problems obtaining lethal injection drugs, which have been yanked off the market by drug companies who don’t want their products used in executions.
