Kentucky turns over lethal injection drugs to feds

Posted:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Kentucky has turned over its supply of a lethal injection drug to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

The supply of sodium thiopental will be used as evidence in a case in another jurisdiction.

The drug has been in short supply since its primary manufacturer stopped making it earlier this year.

It's usually the first drug used when putting inmates to death.
