Tulsa Pharmacy Says It Won't Supply Drug For Missouri Execution

A Tulsa pharmacy has agreed not to provide the state of Missouri with a drug for a scheduled execution next week, but it's unclear whether the decision will delay the lethal injection.

Court documents filed late Monday say death row inmate Michael Taylor has reached an agreement in his lawsuit against The Apothecary Shoppe.

Taylor's lawsuit alleges that the Missouri Department of Corrections contracted with The Apothecary Shoppe to provide compounded pentobarbital for his February 26, 2014 execution. Court documents say the company won't prepare or provide any drug for the execution.

However, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon indicated last week that the state could move forward with the execution even after a judge temporarily blocked the company from providing the drug.

A hearing in Tulsa federal court is set for Tuesday.
