Nitrogen Gas Is Now the Execution Method of Choice in Oklahoma
Oklahoma is the first state to adopt this method.
“As you know, in Oklahoma, a bill that was signed back in 2015 by the governor states that if lethal injection is held unconstitutional or is unavailable, an execution shall be carried out by nitrogen hypoxia,” Attorney General Mike Hunter said. “We are exercising that option.” Nitrogen is one of several inert gases that can cause hypoxia, an oxygen deficiency that causes death.
