This undated file photo provided by the Arkansas Department of Correction shows death-row inmate Marcel Williams, one of four convicted murderers the state executed in 2017. A federal lawsuit filed by death row inmates has renewed a court fight over whether the sedative Arkansas uses for lethal injections causes torturous executions, two years after the state raced to put eight convicted killers, including Williams, to death in 11 days before its batch expired. The state carried out four executions after the other four were halted by court rulings. Arkansas recently expanded the secrecy surrounding its lethal injection drug sources, and the case heading to trial Tuesday, April 23, 2019  could impact its efforts to restart executions that had been on hold due to supply.
