NV: Death Row Prisoner Whose Execution Was Blocked Dies of Suicide

HeadlineJan 07, 2019

In Nevada, death row prisoner Scott Dozier died of an apparent suicide Saturday. Dozier had been scheduled to die by lethal injection in July 2018, but a judge halted the execution just hours beforehand after a pharmaceutical company successfully sued to prevent the use of its drug, midazolam, to be used as part of a three-drug lethal cocktail. The cocktail would have also included the drug fentanyl. Dozier, who was convicted of two murders, had been placed on suicide watch after previous suicide attempts. He was found hanging from a bed sheet inside his prison cell.
