MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Attorney General Troy King is asking that execution dates be set for three Alabama death row inmates.
That request follows a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that cleared the way for use of lethal injection.
King said Friday he has asked the Alabama Supreme Court to set execution dates for Jimmy Dill of Jefferson County, Phillip Hallford of Dale County and Willie McNair of Henry County.
King says the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in a Kentucky case Wednesday removes any question as to the constitutionality of Alabama's lethal injection protocol.
