For the first time in years, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether the lethal injection method of execution is constitutional. The decision to hear the case comes shortly after one Oklahoma state prisoner out of four to file the case was already executed.
At least that won't happen to the other three petitioning prisoners: The High Court granted a stay of their executions until the justices make a ruling.
Does this spell the end of the death penalty? And what is "midazolam," anyway?
