FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Critics of Kentucky's proposed new death penalty method have asked officials to make multiple changes to how executions are carried out now that the state is switching to a one- or two-drug lethal injection.
During a hearing Tuesday morning in Frankfort, public defenders, private attorneys and anti-death penalty activists said the rules Kentucky wants to put in place have multiple problems, including that condemned inmates aren't allowed access to their attorneys on the day of execution.
Kentucky is trying to switch to a method similar to the one used by other states. A judge invalidated the three-drug lethal injection process earlier this year.
Officials say they could ask a judge by early next year to lift an injunction barring executions and for approval of the new method.
