There is a killing on the cards in Nevada. Although some may say it has quasi-suicidal features, it is in fact a thoroughly premeditated and calculated homicide. It has been pursued for more than a dozen years. This would be the first judicial execution in Nevada since 26 April 2006; the first to take place in Nevada’s new death chamber at Ely State Prison; and the first in the whole of the USA to be carried out using the particular three-drug combination chosen by Nevada. The execution has been set for 8pm on Tuesday 14 November 2017.
