Nebraska notifies 2nd death-row inmate of drugs to be used in execution

Carey Dean Moore

The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services notified a second death-row inmate of the substances to be used in his execution by lethal injection.

No date has been set for Carey Dean Moore's execution, but the NDCS sent the letter to him on Friday.

Moore was sentenced to death on two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing two Omaha cab drivers in 1979.

The Nebraska Administrative Code (NAC) Title 69, Chapter 11, requires the director to provide notice to the condemned inmate at least 60 days prior to the Attorney General’s request to the Nebraska Supreme Court for an execution warrant.

The following substances will be administered intravenously in the following order:

  1. Diazepam
  2. Fentanyl Citrate
  3. Cisatracurium Besylate
  4. Potassium Chloride.

NDCS has all four substances, which have been tested according to NAC Title 69, Chapter 11.

An additional supply of Diazepam and Fentanyl was received Friday and will be tested in accordance with NAC Title 69, Chapter 11.

Moore is housed at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution.

Nebraska officials provided the same notice on Nov. 9 to death-row inmate Jose Sandoval, who was convicted for his role in a 2002 Norfolk bank robbery and shooting. No execution date has been set in that case.
