Florida death row inmate wins stay, hearing on new execution drug
Yahoo News - over 3 years
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Reuters) - The Florida Supreme Court ordered a hearing for a man due to be executed next month for multiple murders, after his lawyers challenged the use of a new anesthetic chemical in the state's three-drug method of lethal injection. The justices on Monday ordered a stay until December 27 and required the prison system to show why it believes a new drug being used by the state, midazolam hydrochloride, renders the condemned inmate incapable of feeling pain when the next two drugs cause death. Governor Rick Scott last month signed a death warrant for Askari Abdullah Muhammad, previously known as Thomas Knight, and his execution was scheduled for December 3 for the fatal stabbing of a death row prison guard, Richard Burke. He was also sentenced to die in 1974 for the abduction, robbery and murder of a Miami couple, Sydney and Lillian Gans.
