Supreme Court Agrees to Review Oklahoma Execution Procedure

Friday, 23 Jan 2015 04:30 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to review Oklahoma's method of execution by taking up a case brought by three death row inmates.

The high court, which just last week allowed an execution to go ahead in the state over the objection of its four liberal members, will decide whether the three-drug process used by prison officials violates the U.S. Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
