Nevada to Execute Man, First Time in 15 Years

By Joe 1of2

Convicted killer Zane Michael Floyd is set to be the first person to be executed in the state of Nevada in 15 years. Another man who was set to be killed by lethal injection committed suicide, so Floyd is next. Floyd has made a request to be killed by firing squad instead of the three drug cocktail planned by the state. Floyd’s attorneys are challenging the lethal injection plan in favor of the requested firing squad. Appeals by lawyers to avoid the three drug cocktail, twice delayed the execution of the death row inmate who committed suicide. Floyd’s lawyers said the request of this inmate to be killed by firing squad is not an attempt to delay their client’s execution.
