One sedative will be substituted for another, and prison officials said Tuesday they plan to use two other drugs never before used in executions in any state for Nevada’s first lethal injection in 12 years. The drugs include a powerful synthetic opioid that has been blamed for overdoses nationwide.


A revised and redacted death penalty protocol for the scheduled July 11 execution of Scott Raymond Dozier calls for injecting midazolam to sedate him, then the opioid fentanyl to slow and perhaps stop his breathing followed by a muscle paralyzing drug called cisatracurium.

Dozier, 47, is a twice-convicted murderer who has been on death row since 2007.
