Three men have been executed in Nebraska since the Supreme Court ruled in 1976 that the death penalty is not a violation of the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution, which bans cruel and unusual punishment.
Nebraska is the only state with electrocution as its sole means of execution. That has aroused concern among death-penalty supporters that it might eventually be struck down by courts as an unusual punishment that violates the Eighth Amendment, and has led to calls that the state add lethal injection as a means of execution.
