PHOENIX (AP) — An attorney for an Arizona death row inmate scheduled to be executed Tuesday says the state may have committed fraud in importing two execution drugs from Britain.

The lawyer for inmate Eric John King asked the state attorney general Friday to have an independent law enforcement agency investigate possible violation of a state law against making false statements on official documents.

The request cites Food and Drug Administration forms in which the imported drugs are described as "animal (food processing)."

At least one of the drugs is in short supply nationally.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Tom Horne and a spokesman for the Department of Corrections say they weren't aware of the request and had no immediate comment Friday.
