The future of executions in Arkansas with 29 people on death row.

Posted by


Prior to April, Arkansas hadn’t executed a prisoner since 2005.
Now that the state’s supply of midazolam, one of three drugs it uses in an approved lethal injection cocktail, has expired, some question if and how the state will move forward with the remaining death row inmates.
Attorney General Leslie Rutledge said there are 29 prisoners on death row, and four of them have exhausted appeals.
Rutledge said she expects to move forward with more executions in mid-to-late May or early summer.
