Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery wants the state Supreme Court to schedule eight death sentences before June 1, when the availability of a lethal injection drug would become “uncertain,” The Tennessean reports. Slatery made the request in a court document filed Thursday. The defendants in each of the eight cases asked the court for 14 days to file a response in opposition to the attorney general’s request. The state hasn’t put someone to death since 2009.
