Four executions in Terre Haute blocked

Four federal executions set for December in Terre Haute likely will not happen.

A judge blocked the federal executions, which were scheduled to be the first in 16 years.

The gist of why they were blocked is that the new method for federal executions uses one drug.

Indiana’s protocol is for three drugs. The four inmates argued that federal execution protocols must conform to state law.
