OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Ten days after increasing the number of ways in which Oklahoma can carry out executions, lawyers for the state say they'll execute two men this month with a combination of drugs never used in the state.

Lawyers for the state and for inmates Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner said Tuesday the executioner will inject the men with the sedative midazolam, plus pancuronium bromide and potassium chloride, which paralyzes victims and stops the heart.

Lockett and Warner had sued to learn more about the drugs and a judge ruled last week they had a right to know.

Amid a shortage of execution drugs, the state revised its protocols 10 days ago so the Corrections Department would have more options. Warner's lawyer says Florida has used the new Oklahoma combination.
