OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Board of Corrections is set to meet in closed session to discuss Tuesday night’s execution of Clayton Lockett.
The board’s regular monthly meeting is planned for 1 p.m. Thursday in Oklahoma City. An amended meeting agenda shows the panel will go into executive session to discuss the investigation and "possible litigation" related to Lockett’s execution.
Lockett died 43 minutes after his execution began Tuesday night as Oklahoma used a new drug combination for the first time in the state. Autopsy results are pending but state prison officials say Lockett apparently suffered a massive heart attack.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections did not respond to a request for more details about Thursday’s corrections board meeting.
