Nevada Prison Officials have agreed to change their procedure for Wednesday night's scheduled execution of Daryl Mack. The change comes in response to a lawsuit filed by the Reno-Gazette Journal.
The department has decided to allow authorized personnel to witness the entire process, including news media. The change was announced two days after the RGJ filed a lawsuit challenging the limited viewing allowed by the department, citing the public's First Amendment right to view the entire execution.
Mack received the death penalty for the 1988 sexual assault and strangling of a Reno woman.
