This undated file photo provided by the Arkansas Department of Correction shows death-row inmate Marcel Williams, one of four convicted murderers the state executed in 2017. A federal lawsuit filed by death row inmates has renewed a court fight over whether the sedative Arkansas uses for lethal injections causes torturous executions, two years after the state raced to put eight convicted killers, including Williams, to death in 11 days before its batch expired. The state carried out four executions after the other four were halted by court rulings. Arkansas recently expanded the secrecy surrounding its lethal injection drug sources, and the case heading to trial Tuesday, April 23, 2019  could impact its efforts to restart executions that had been on hold due to supply.

FILE - In this Sept. 15, 2016 file photo, Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs holds up a photo showing the type of BB gun that police say a 13-year-old Tyre King pulled from his waistband just before he was shot and killed by police investigating an armed robbery report in Columbus, Ohio.  Four teenagers who were with King before he was fatally shot by a white police officer have been added as third-party defendants in a civil rights lawsuit over his death, even though his family doesn’t believe the teens should be held financially responsible. The teens were added to the federal case over the death of King at the request of the city of Columbus, meaning they could be on the hook if the city or the officer is found liable for damages in the lawsuit.
