COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio says it's resuming executions in January with a three-drug protocol similar to one it used for several years. The concept is one adopted for decades by many states. The first drug sedates inmates, the second paralyzes them, and the third stops their hearts. The key difference comes with the first drug the state plans to use, midazolam, which has been challenged in court as unreliable.
