Nebraska Executes Inmate With Drug Cocktail Including Fentanyl

There's a Fentanyl Crisis in the United States. Nebraska Is About To Murder Someone With It on Purpose

His execution marked the first time any state has used fentanyl in a lethal injection.

Nevada had been set to be the first state to use fentanyl in an execution last month, until a judge put the execution on hold because of concerns about one of the other drugs in the cocktail.

Moore, 60, had served 38 years on death row for shooting and killing cab drivers Reuel Van Ness and Maynard Helgeland in the summer of 1979, according to the Omaha World-Herald. The execution lasted approximately 20 minutes, according to Scott Frakes, director of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.

"We could see him mouthing some words toward his witnesses, it was clear he said I love you several times", witness Brent Martin of Nebraska Radio Network said at a news conference after the death, KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Nebraska, reports. Three years after Nebraska lawmakers voted to abolish capital punishment, the state is preparing to carry out its first execution since 1997 on Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, in an about-face driven largely by Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts who helped finance a ballot drive to reinstate the punishment after lawmakers overrode his veto and abolished the punishment in 2015.

Danielle Conrad, the director of the American Civil Liberties Union - Nebraska, said in a statement on Twitter that Moore's execution is the "most recent dark chapter in the state's troubled history with the death penalty".

"The first of four substances was administered at 10:24 am". Fresenius Kabi raised questions about how the state obtained them and wrote in its lawsuit that the use of its drugs in capital punishment would cause "harm to its property interests". It last performed an execution in 1997 with the electric chair.

The two Fresenius Kabi drugs that the state used are cisatracurium, a muscle relaxer, and potassium chloride, which stops the heart.

Moore fatally shot Maynard Helgeland by himself five days later, saying he wanted to prove he could take a man's life by himself. He was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder, prison records show.

Four media witnesses including an Associated Press reporter saw Carey Dean Moore taking short, gasping breaths Tuesday after the lethal injections started.

In his statement, Moore also apologized to his brother for dragging him into the robbery and murder.

But two pharmaceutical companies tried to block the execution in federal court, claiming their reputations would suffer if the killing proceeded.

State prison director Scott Frakes wrote in an affidavit after the lawsuit was filed that "lethal substances used in a lethal injection execution are hard, if almost impossible, to obtain", detailing his attempts to secure drugs from at least 40 suppliers, according to the Washington Post. This time, he has stopped fighting the state's efforts to execute him.

The company quickly appealed, and on Monday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit agreed with the lower court's ruling, paving the way for the execution to go forward.

A combined total of less than a dozen death penalty supporters and opponents gathered in the rain while the execution took place.
