Governor John Bel Edwards has responded with a letter of his own after Attorney General Jeff Landry criticized him for halting executions in the state. Edwards responded by saying executions are not being carried out, because the only drugs that the legislature has authorized for lethal injection haven’t been accessible since 2010.
"It's a statutory prescribed manner of death and we have certain drugs we have to use and they are absolutely not available," Edwards said.
In a tweet, Landry says he supports the death penalty, whether it's by lethal injection, gas, hanging or firing squad.
