COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio plans to move a condemned killer facing a never-tried lethal injection method to the state death house a day ahead of his scheduled execution.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction will use a combination of a sedative and a painkiller to put Dennis McGuire to death for the 1989 rape and fatal stabbing of Joy Stewart in Preble County in western Ohio.
The agency was expected Wednesday to move McGuire from death row in Chillicothe to the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, where executions are carried out.
The state announced its plan to use the two-drug process after supplies of its previous drug dried up when its manufacturer put it off limits for capital punishment.
