Alabama Supreme Court sets Jan. 21 execution for Brooks.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Supreme Court has set a Jan. 21 execution date for a man convicted of raping and murdering a woman more than 20 years ago. A federal judge on Monday also allowed Brooks to join a lawsuit filed by death row inmates challenging the state’s new lethal injection drug combination as cruel and unusual punishment. On Nov. 2, Brooks filed a motion to be added to a separate lawsuit in which five other plaintiffs also challenge the constitutionality of Alabama’s execution method.
