Overtime for Arkansas Correctional Institute

The state government of Arkansas plans to execute eight men over a period of 10 days in April because one of the key drugs in their lethal injection protocol is set to expire at the end of the month.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson set the dates between April 17 and 27 and will require the state's department of corrections to execute two men per day with a few days between each lethal injection.

That'll tie Arkansas with Texas for the number of people executed in one month. But they beat that state out by doing it in only ten days. Arkansas tops the charts at last.
No state has used this particular "cocktail" of drugs to execute two in one day, either.
Two time winner.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
