“A federal court denied a request to stay the executions of four death-row inmates in Oklahoma on Friday. Julius Jones, Wade Lay, Donald Grant and Gilbert Postelle have been fighting to halt their executions, which are all scheduled within the next three months, The Associated Press reported. An appeal to stop the executions was rejected by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that the merits of the inmates’ claims would likely not succeed.The inmates argued that the sedative midazolam, the drug used for lethal injections, could cause them extreme pain during their executions. They also asserted that the state would violate their religious rights if they were to choose their own alternate method of execution, because making such a choice would amount to abetting their own suicides.” (11/13/21)
