ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - The state of Ohio has given a judge details of its lethal-injection execution procedure in a court challenge in northeast Ohio.

A 700-page binder was turned over to the judge yesterday in Lorain in a challenge filed by two murder suspects facing death-penalty trials. The details will remain secret for now.

Judge James Burge plans a hearing next month with expert testimony on whether legal injection is unconstitutional cruel and unusual punishment.
