Earlier today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that an Arizona execution can be carried out even in the midst of the closely monitored fight concerning secrecy involving lethal injection drugs including where they are obtained and how they are made. Joseph Rudolph Wood was convicted of the 1989 murder of his ex-girlfriend and her father. Arizona officials scheduled Wood's execution for Wednesday. The execution had been put on hold by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals until the state could reveal the information pertaining to the creation of the drugs used for lethal injections. They also desired that it be made known who is responsible for making the drugs to be used. Arizona's Attorney General, Tom Horne had requested that the top court in the nation reverse the ruling which put the hold in place. Horne stated that Wood is not able to establish that he has a first amendment right to know the details of his pending death.
