A judge is set to rule in a case over whether Arizona must reveal its supplier of execution drugs and the qualifications of the people who help the state carry out the death penalty.

After the controversial execution of inmate Joseph Wood three years ago this week, the Associated Press, The Arizona Republic and other news outlets sued the state seeking that information.

For the latest on this, we talk to Arizona Republic reporter Michael Kiefer on the line.
