OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The president of Oklahoma City University has added his name to legal papers criticizing Oklahoma’s execution methods.

Former attorney general Robert Henry says in a document filed with the U.S. Supreme Court that lawyers picked an inappropriate drug for lethal injection because they were on a tight deadline and under political pressure.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who is defending the state in the case, plans to submit his written arguments to the court this week.
