Idaho Court Makes Ruling On Execution Documents

SCOTT KI / BOISE STATE PUBLIC RADIO
Idaho execution chamber

An Idaho state judge ruled the state's Department of Corrections must release information regarding the drugs used in executions from 2011 and 2012.

In recent years, states that use this mode of execution have been finding it difficult to obtain the necessary drugs and have turned to different cocktails of available drugs, which have resulted in prolonged executions with the condemned demonstrating clear pain.

Idaho Matters speaks with University of Idaho law professor Aliza Cover and Ritchie Eppink of the Idaho ACLU about the use of these drugs in state executions.
