VARNER, Ark. (AP) — The Latest on Arkansas' effort to execute a fourth inmate before its supply of a lethal injection drug expires on Sunday (all times local):
Arkansas' attorney general is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to allow the execution of inmate Kenneth Williams to go forward.
In filings before the court Thursday night, Arkansas' attorney general's office is arguing that Williams' conviction and death sentence have been thoroughly reviewed by courts. Williams was sentenced to death for the 1999 killing of Cecil Boren, whom Williams fatally shot after escaping from prison.
