TULSA - Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has agreed to provide samples of drugs used in Tuesday's botched execution to attorneys for the man who died that night, as well as the man who was waiting to die and whose execution is now on hold.
KRMG obtained a copy of a letter sent by the AG's office to attorneys for Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner.
Both men had fought to find out exactly what the lethal injection "cocktail" was comprised of, and how the state obtained the drugs.
Their executions were actually delayed while the courts heard arguments on whether they had that right; eventually, it was decided they didn't.
But now that Lockett died of an apparent heart attack after the lethal injection didn't work, the AG has agreed to provide samples of the drugs, but will still not reveal the actual source.
Meanwhile, KRMG has learned that the autopsy of Lockett could take two to three months, and the state will not carry out any executions until its investigation into his death is complete.
