Arkansas Executions

For 12 years, the death chamber has been empty in the state, but this week a single execution and then a double execution were held there.

Jack Jones and Marcel Williams, both on death row for over 20 years for murder and rape, were killed most recently.

There is a rush in Arkansas because one of their injection drugs, Midazolam, passes its expiry in May, and the drug makers are trying to block the state from getting more due to concerns about how the drugs are obtained and used.
