DALLAS-Texas prison officials are changing the way they execute death row inmates due to a drug shortage.
Texas has been using the sedative "pentobarbital" in combination with two other drugs. But the Texas Department of Criminal Justice said in a statement Tuesday that it will now use pentobarbital by itself.
TDCJ said it changed protocol Monday because its stock of one of the other drugs expired. Pentobarbital also is in short supply--its maker stopped selling it for executions last year.
