Nebraska on Tuesday carried out America's first execution using fentanyl - the opioid at the center of the country's deadly overdose crisis - as part of a previously-untested, four-drug combination.

At 9 a.m., just an hour before Moore was set to die he was read his execution warrant.

Carey Dean Moore, 60, appears in a police booking photo released in Lincoln, by the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, Nebraska, U.S., August 1, 2018.

The company accused Nebraska of improperly using its drugs.

It was the first execution in Nebraska since 1997. People close to him had said he was ready to die.

No members of the victims' families witnessed the execution. The concoction included sedative diazepam, muscle relaxant cisatracurium, potassium chloride and fentanyl.

"No one has used it before, and we've had hundreds and hundreds of executions by injection".

"The public (in Nebraska) has always agreed with the death penalty - always", said state Sen.

"It indicates that states are looking for drugs that are available", Dunham told AFP.

Reality Star Lyric McHenry Dead at 26
McHenry shared a video of herself on Instagram just hours before she was found, celebrating her 26th birthday with friends. An autopsy has since been scheduled to determine what caused her death.

The state had said in a court filing that the drugs "were obtained from a licensed pharmacy in the United States and were not obtained by any fraud, deceit or misrepresentation".

Tuesday's execution marked the first time Nebraska executed an inmate using lethal injection - its last execution, in 1997, used an electric chair. The company said that its products may be sold only by authorized dealers and that they have "contractually agreed to particular constraints, such as excluding sale to federal or state incarceration facilities".

State prison director Scott Frakes wrote in an affidavit after the lawsuit was filed that "lethal substances used in a lethal injection execution are hard, if almost impossible, to obtain", detailing his attempts to secure drugs from at least 40 suppliers, according to the Washington Post.

It demanded that the state disclose the source of its drugs.

On Friday, a federal district court judge denied the company's request for a temporary restraining order, which would have halted the execution. His death comes about three years after Nebraska lawmakers abolished the death penalty, only to have it reinstated the following year through a ballot initiative partially financed by Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts.

"While I respect the pope's perspective, capital punishment remains the will of the people and the law of the state of Nebraska", according to Ricketts' statement to the Times. A small group also gathered in the early evening in the state capital Lincoln to criticize the governor's decision.

The American Civil Liberties union also criticized the governor, saying he had carried out an execution "shrouded in secrecy".

Expressing contrition, he admitted to fatally shooting the first driver during a robbery committed with his brother, and killing the second driver to "foolishly" prove to himself that he could commit murder on his own. Fresenius Kabi raised questions about how the state obtained them and wrote in its lawsuit that the use of its drugs in capital punishment would cause "harm to its property interests". "Why must they remain there one day longer?"
