Indiana aids states with execution drug shortages

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A spokesman for Indiana's prison system says the state is helping other states dealing with shortages of drugs used to execute death row inmates.

Department of Correction spokesman Doug Garrison tells WIBC-FM he can't go into the details, but confirms Indiana has assisted states facing shortages of the drugs.

Many European drugmakers have stopped selling drugs used in lethal injections in the American prison system because they oppose the death penalty.

Garrison says Indiana's isn't worried about running out of lethal injection drugs. He says the state has enough of those drugs on hand to carry out a death sentence if the Indiana Supreme Court sets an execution date.

Thirteen convicted murderers are on Indiana's Death Row, but only one is near the point of exhausting his appeals.
