This undated file photo provided by the Arkansas Department of Correction shows death-row inmate Marcel Williams, one of four convicted murderers the state executed in 2017. A federal lawsuit filed by death row inmates has renewed a court fight over whether the sedative Arkansas uses for lethal injections causes torturous executions, two years after the state raced to put eight convicted killers, including Williams, to death in 11 days before its batch expired.
