Inmates in Oklahoma 'secrecy' row to be executed

Two death row inmates who lost a case in the Oklahoma Supreme Court will be put to death in a rare same-day double execution, the governor has said.

Clayton Lockett, 38, and Charles Warner will be executed on 29 April, Governor Mary Fallin has said.

The court on Wednesday ruled they had no right to know the source of the drugs that will be used to kill them.

They argued knowing the source would keep the executions from being botched with impure or expired drugs.
