The 8 inmates Arkansas was planning to execute this month

An Arkansas circuit judge on Friday evening issued an order temporarily blocking the state from using one of its lethal injection drugs until further notice, throwing into question a series of executions scheduled to begin next week.
McAndrew, who took part in the deaths of three convicts in Florida and five in Texas as part of his training says that the executions in Arkansas will undoubtedly be carried out by the same five people.
The company said the Arkansas prison system failed to return a supply of the drug when it learned the state meant to use it for executions, a violation of an understanding between the two, according to McKesson. Folks probably know the Eighth Amendment is the constitutional prohibition on cruel and unusual.
The challenges were filed by eight death row prisoners scheduled to be executed by the end of April - the fastest pace of executions since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976. They include a post days before his ruling which criticized the execution push in Arkansas.
In a statement he said he expected all of the last month's clemency hearings and court cases to be tough on the victim's families, calling it "all part of a hard process".

"The schedule imposed on these officials, as well as their lack of recent execution experience, causes concern", she wrote. Defense lawyer Jeff Rozensweig said the execution schedule "reeks of an assembly line".
"It is unfortunate that a U.S. District Judge has chosen to side with the convicted prisoners in one of their many last-minute attempts to delay justice", Deere told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazettein an emailed statement.
Attorney General Leslie Rutledge also wants to remove the judge from the case after he participated in an anti-death penalty demonstration the day he issued his decision. But one got his clemency appeal approved by the parole board and his execution stayed by the state Supreme Court.
Hutchinson put the execution spree into play because one of the drugs used for executions, Midazolam, is set to expire at the end of April, the BBCreports.
Several pharmaceutical companies, notably European-based ones, refuse to allow their drugs to be used in executions. (The third is potassium chloride.) According to the pharmaceutical distributor McKesson Corporation, the state bought a supply of vecuronium bromide in July, despite the distributors' efforts to prevent it from being used to induce death.
The Associated Press previously determined, using package labels, who made the state's supply of midazolam and vecuronium bromide. The company said it was reassured the drug would be returned and even issued a refund, but the drug was never returned.
McKesson is asking the Department of Correction to return 10 vials of the drug.
John C. Williams, an assistant federal public defender representing some of the inmates, praised Baker's ruling and said the execution plans in Arkansas "denies prisoners their right to be free from the risk of torture". Pharmacists who studied botched executions noted the phenomena in a paper published in 2015 and said precipitation is "a likely scenario" with large doses.
"These thoughts weigh heavily on the court, but the court has a responsibility to uphold the Constitution. After hearing the evidence ... the court is compelled to stay these executions", she said.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson initially scheduled eight executions for the 11-day period, but other court action reduced the number of executions to six.

Two other drug makers on Thursday asked a federal court to block Arkansas from using their drugs for upcoming executions, claiming that doing so would violate contractual controls and create a public health risk, court documents showed. They were set to be executed two at a time between Monday and April 27, with lethal injections scheduled on consecutive Mondays and Thursdays.
