SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - In a story March 23, The Associated Press reported that Utah became the only U.S. state to allow firing squads for executions. The story should have specified that it became the only state to allow firing squads if no lethal injection drugs are available. Oklahoma law also allows the use of firing squads, but only if courts ever declare lethal injections and electrocutions unconstitutional.
