TDCJ Will Continue Lethal Injection Protocol

Published on July 25, 2014 by Larry Crippen

TDCJ has responded to the media that they do not plan to change their lethal injection procedures despite the issues with an execution in Arizona.

According to a published report, a recent execution of a man in Arizona took a couple of hours when they used a particular two-drug protocol. Texas is reported to use a single dose of a sedative called pentobarbital.

TDCJ spokesperson Jason Clark said they have used the one drug in executions for 33 executions without complication.

In future months, ten inmates have scheduled executions.
