LINCOLN — Nebraska prison officials have notified another death row inmate they intend to carry out his execution using an untried combination of lethal drugs. The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services said Friday it provided the execution notice to Carey Dean Moore, who shot and killed Omaha cabdrivers Reuel Van Ness and Maynard Helgeland in the summer of 1979. The letter from Scott Frakes, the department’s director, informed Moore that it intends to use the following drugs in sequence: diazepam, fentanyl citrate, cisatracurium besylate and potassium chloride. They are the same drugs Frakes has said were obtained before a similar notice was given to death row inmate Jose Sandoval in November. The state’s execution protocol requires inmates to be given notice of the drug at least 60 days before a death warrant is requested to carry out a lethal injection.
