Since that incident, other executions were halted, some with just hours to spare. There are currently four executions scheduled during a 24-hour period from Tuesday night to Wednesday night, though it’s unclear how many of these will actually occur. (At least one is likely to be stayed, while the Supreme Court on Tuesday night denied requests to stay two of the other executions.) Still, on Tuesday night, the U.S. saw its first execution in nearly two months.

Here’s a rundown of the executions that are scheduled as well as what has happened since the botched Oklahoma execution. (We will update this post when new developments occur, either in the form of legal challenges or executions being carried out.)
