Nevada: Quickly assess which are necessary for the case of death penalty inmate

LAS VEGAS – Nevada attorney general asks the state Supreme Court for a quick review of a never-before-tried plan for the lethal injection of a death row inmate because of a drug that would be used will expire on 1 April.

Attorney general spokeswoman Monica Moazez said Monday that the request was filed on Friday with the high court.

Death-row inmate Scott Raymond Dozier, is now telling a judge that his execution on account that he does not care of the state makes use of the controversial paralytic cisatracurium (sis-at-rah-KYUR’-ee-um) as the third drug in his lethal injection.

The drug prevents movement of the body and is proposed as an agent to ensure that the breathing stops.

Dozier says in a letter to the judge he doesn’t want more of the procedures for the court and just wants to be put to death.
