Convicted killers in three states are facing executions within a 24-hour period beginning tonight, in what could be the first lethal injections in the nation since a botched execution in Oklahoma seven weeks ago. The states planning executions -- Florida, Georgia and Missouri -- refuse to say where they get their drugs, or if they are tested, according to the Associated Press. Lawyers for two of the men have challenged the process used to obtain the drugs. Nine executions have been stayed or postponed since the Oklahoma incident. WATE has the AP story.
