This Dec. 31, 2017 photo provided by the South Dakota Department of Corrections shows Charles Rhines at the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls. Rhines, a convict scheduled to be executed in November 2019 in South Dakota for a 1992 fatal stabbing is taking issue with the state's choice of the drug that will take his life. He is asking the state to follow the law on lethal injections at the time he was sentenced to death in 1993 when a protocol of an ultra-short-acting lethal drug and a chemical paralytic were used. Rhines was convicted of killing 22-year-old Donnivan Schaeffer while burglarizing a doughnut shop.(South Dakota Department of Corrections via AP)
