Arizona Executes Death Row Inmate

Posted By on Tue, Oct 26, 2010 at 11:27 PM

The state has executed convicted murderer Jeffrey Landrigan.

From The Associated Press report:

Arizona has executed Jeffrey Landrigan for a 1989 murder in the state’s first execution since 2007.

Landrigan died by injection at a state prison in Florence at 10:29 p.m. Tuesday after a stay issued by a federal judge was lifted by the U.S. Supreme Court. That stay was based on questions about the effectiveness of the state’s supply of an execution drug in short supply.

Arizona obtained a supply of the sedative drug sodium thiopental from Great Britain.
