Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has met with state legislators to discuss what he says is a broken death penalty system in the state.
He stopped short though of advocating a solution on Wednesday when he appeared before a joint meeting of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.
Arkansas hasn't executed an inmate since 2005, and McDaniel has said he doesn't expect that to change anytime soon.
The state doesn't have any pending executions and Gov. Mike Beebe said Wednesday that he doubts an execution will take place while he's governor.
Wednesday's meeting comes as Arkansas and other states grapple with legal challenges and a shortage of drugs used in lethal injections.
