Oklahoma Developing New Protocol For Executions After 3-Year Hiatus
OKLAHOMA CITY - A new plan is being developed for executions in Oklahoma following a three-year hiatus after the discovery of a "pharmaceutical mistake" in the case of death row inmate Richard Glossip.
At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter Director of the Department of Corrections Joe Allbaugh announced that the state will move forward with executions by method of “inert gas inhalation”.
