GONZALES - The Department of Safety & Corrections say they don’t have the execution drugs on hand necessary to carry out an execution scheduled for next month.

Serial killer Daniel Blank was scheduled to have his death sentence carried out on Mar. 14 in Ascension Parish.

The department says they have protocol in place for such a situation, and they’ll carry that protocol out until legal actions dictate otherwise.

Blank received his death sentence in connection with the first-degree murder of 72-year-old Lillian Philippe in 1997. He also pleaded guilty in 2009 to beating a 55-year-old LaPlace woman to death in her own backyard.
