Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) has ordered a “top-down assessment of execution protocol” within the state, calling for a brief pause on executions following a 3rd failed deadly injection try within the final 4 years.

Ivey’s order follows Thursday’s aborted execution of Kenneth Eugene Smith after state officers didn’t discover a appropriate vein to inject the lethal medication.
