An Iowa man convicted of murdering five people in 1993 is scheduled to be executed in July at an Indiana prison.
A federal judge had blocked the execution of Dustin Lee Honken and his three co-defendants last November.
Honken was convicted in a 2004 federal trial in Sioux City of five counts of murder during a continuing criminal enterprise and numerous other counts.
The jury found that he killed two drug dealers who were to testify against him during a 1993 investigation, a mother and her two children.
Their bodies weren’t recovered for years.
Honken, a resident of Britt, Iowa, expanded his meth-making and selling enterprise in the following years.
U-S Attorney General William Barr on Monday directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to schedule the executions.
The 52-year-old Honken will be executed at the U-S Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana.
