FILE - In this July 30, 1997 file photo, a television camera mounted on the ceiling of a witness room is pointed toward the Arkansas death chamber at Cummins Prison in Varner, Ark. After surrendering its supply of a lethal injection drug to federal agents in 2011, Arkansas turned to a somewhat surprising place to look for another drug: a list prepared by lawyers for several death row inmates. The state Department of Correction has told The Associated Press that it decided to use phenobarbital after attorneys for several death row inmates mentioned in a lawsuit that it might be an available drug that’s regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
