Texas cancels execution due to drug purity testing

The scheduled July 14 execution of a Houston man, Perry Eugene Williams, convicted of abducting and killing a Texas Medical Center student was delayed indefinitely this week, after state officials failed to meet a deadline for obtaining test results on the purity of the lethal injection drugs, reported the Houston Chronicle.
Williams was one of only seven executions, all in Texas, to be carried out before the end of 2016. With 14 executions so far this year, 2016 looks to have the fewest executions since 1992.
If this issue with regard to drug purity is not resolved in Texas, there may not be another execution in the United States this year.
