Arkansas carries out first of 7 planned executions

A handout photo made available by the Arkansas Department of Corrections shows undated file photos provided on 14 April 2017 of Arkansas death row inmates who are or were scheduled to be executed by lethal injection before the end of the month and before the expiration date for one of the drugs that will be used. Pictured, top row from left are: Bruce Earl Ward, Don W. Davis, execution date 17 April; Ledell Lee, Stacey Johnson, execution date 20 April. Bottom row from left are Jack Jones Jr., Marcel Williams, execution date 24 April; Kenneth Williams, execution date 27 April. Jason McGehee was scheduled for execution on 27 April until a judge issued a stay. The seven scheduled executions for one month is a record for Arkansas.
