Arkansas, which has been in a race to execute death-row inmates before a key lethal drug expires, plans to hold its final execution in the series Thursday night.
Attorneys for the condemned men have put forth arguments about their innocence, intellectual abilities, mental states and about the execution procedure.
But what happens to those debates after an execution?
Ledell Lee was the first inmate executed this month in Arkansas. There was scant physical evidence tying him to the murder he was convicted of, and he was never given a DNA test before his execution.
