Missouri says it has a drug supplier for its upcoming execution

The state has arranged with an unidentified pharmacy to provide the lethal injection chemical for use in next Wednesday’s execution of Michael Taylor, a Kansas City man convicted in the 1989 killing of 15-year-old Ann Harrison. Missouri revealed the existence of the supplier of pentobarbital — the drug used in the state’s last three executions — in a federal court filing opposing a stay of execution for Taylor.
