OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A spokesman for Gov. Mary Fallin says the office’s top attorney who announced his resignation this week will not receive a buyout package.

Spokesman Michael McNutt said Friday that general counsel Steve Mullins will receive his accrued annual leave pay, just like any other state employee.

Mullins indicated in his resignation letter on Thursday that he planned to accept a “voluntary buyout,” but McNutt says the office is not offering any such package to its employees.

Mullins earned $100,000 a year as Fallin’s general counsel.

His resignation comes amid a grand jury investigation into how the wrong lethal injection drug was delivered to the Oklahoma State Penitentiary during the state’s last two scheduled executions.

Mullins appeared before the grand jury in October.
