Alabama Plans to Resume Executions After Series of Botches; Oklahoma Execution Scheduled for Same Day

Two of the nation’s high­est-use death penal­ty states have sched­uled exe­cu­tions for July 20, 2023. Alabama is set to exe­cute James Barber (pic­tured, left), resum­ing exe­cu­tions after Governor Kay Ivey halt­ed them in November 2022 in response to three con­sec­u­tive botched exe­cu­tions. Oklahoma plans to exe­cute Jemaine Cannon (pic­tured, right), one of the 25 peo­ple includ­ed in the two-year exe­cu­tion spree announced in 2022.
