But because of the unresolved legal questions about the contents of the dødssprøjten, the execution was postponed several times.

the Executions were postponed, because the three drug companies objected to their products being used to kill death row prisoners.
the Company Alvogen has previously stated that it does not want, that its product - a numbing agent by the name of Midazolam - used in what the company describes as 'failed' executions.
A judge has called off the executions, because they do not exactly know what happens when you execute prisoners, with the three different substances in the dødssprøjten.
Scott Raymond Dozier begged and asked to be put to death. He has also said that he didn't care if it would be a painful death. He just wanted to die.
- Life in prison is not a life, he said last year in an interview with the newspaper Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Dozier was in 2007 convicted for having killed and dismembered a young man in Las Vegas in 2002. The man's torso was found in a suitcase. In 2005 committed the Dozier yet another killing. He was also convicted as a drug dealer.
The 46-year-old man has now got peace. But the legal niceties about the contents of the giftsprøjten has not yet been resolved.
