Oklahoma Pharmacy Won’t Give Drug For Missouri Execution

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma pharmacy has agreed not to provide Missouri with a drug for a scheduled execution next week, but it’s unclear whether the decision will delay the lethal injection.

Court documents filed late Monday say death row inmate Michael Taylor has reached an agreement in his lawsuit against The Apothecary Shoppe.

His attorneys say the Tulsa compounding pharmacy was providing a drug for his Feb. 26 execution that could cause “inhumane pain.” The court documents say the company won’t prepare or provide any drug for the execution.

However, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon indicated last week that the state could move forward with the execution even after a judge temporarily blocked the company from providing the drug.

A hearing is set for Tuesday in the case.
