Ohio postpones all 2015 executions as it secures new drugs

Yahoo! National News - 4 hours 19 min ago
By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Ohio will postpone all six executions scheduled for 2015 because it needs more time to prepare for a new execution procedure and to secure a new supply of execution drugs, the state's prison department said on Friday. Earlier this month, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction halted use of the two-drug lethal injection combination of the sedative midazolam and painkiller hydromorphone after the protracted death of an inmate last year. The state prison system wants to add a drug, thiopental sodium, previously used for lethal injections from 1999 to 2011, and pentobarbital as the two drugs permitted for lethal injections in the future. Ohio and other states with the death penalty are seeking new execution drug formulations after some pharmaceutical companies stopped supplying products because they no longer wanted to be associated with capital punishment.

Yahoo! National News - 4 hours 32 min ago

This file photo shows reporters that were enlisted to act as pall bearers at the interment of Lee Harvey Oswald at the Shannon Rose Hill Cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas. A Tarrant County judge on Friday, Jan. 30, 2015, said the original casket in which Lee Harvey Oswald was buried belongs to Oswald's brother, not the funeral home that auctioned it off for more than $87,000. The judge ordered the funeral home to pay the same amount of money in damages to Robert Oswald, saying its conduct was "malicious and wanton." Pallbearers from left end - Jerry Flemmons with crewcut and no glasses. In front of Flemmons are reporters Ed Horn and Mike Cochran. Funeral director Paul J. Groody was among the pallbearers.

Ex-New Jersey pharmacist gets more than 6 years in prison for trying to make ricin

Yahoo! National News - 4 hours 34 min ago
(Reuters) - A former New Jersey pharmacist has been sentenced to 6-1/2 years in prison for "attempting to weaponize" the deadly toxins ricin and abrin and for possessing equipment for making illegal narcotics, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday. Jordan Gonzalez, 34, pleaded guilty in May 2014 in federal court in New Jersey. In addition to the prison term "for attempting to weaponize the lethal toxins" and possessing a prohibited flask with the intention of using it to produce illegal narcotics, U.S. District Judge Mary Cooper sentenced Gonzalez to five years of supervised release, the Justice Department said in a statement. Gonzalez was arrested in November 2013 after law enforcement officials tracked several suspicious deliveries to his New York City apartment, including a kilogram of a toxic and explosive compound, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said.
