Supreme Court Clears Way For Arkansas Executions

Chicot Memorial

WASHINGTON (Ben Caxton) — The United States Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by nine Arkansas Death Row inmates to stop their pending executions. The inmates had claimed that they should not be executed because their deaths would be “intolerably painful”. The Arkansas Supreme Court rejected the argument, and the inmates appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court which now has upheld the ruling, clearing the way for their execution. Arkansas has 34 men on death row but has not held an execution since 2005.
