Court OKs Lethal Injection Despite Request for Death by Asphyxia


The Supreme Court has ruled that Alabama can kill death row inmate Alan Eugene Miller via lethal injection despite his assertion that the state had lost his request to be killed by nitrogen hypoxia (suffocation) because he has a fear of needles, reports the New York Times. Alabama is among several states that have sought new execution methods as political pressure on pharmaceutical groups has made it more difficult for states to obtain lethal injection drugs.
