Nebraska execution: Carey Dean Moore becomes first inmate on death row killed using fentanyl

Nebraska execution: Carey Dean Moore becomes first inmate on death row killed using fentanylNebraska has become the first US state to use the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl in a lethal injection after a federal three-judge panel denied a drug company’s request to stop the execution over concerns the state had acquired the drug illegally. The execution of Carey Dean Moore marks the first execution in the state since 1997, and the use of the prescription drug in the process comes as pharmaceutical companies across the country look to take legal action against states attempting to use their products in executions. Moore had been serving prison time since 1980, when he was convicted of two first degree murders and given the death penalty.
