Stay Of Execution
Defense lawyers have made a late request to halt the execution of a North Texas woman set to become the first female put to death in the U.S. in three years. The request was sent just hours before Kimberly McCarthy’s scheduled execution.
Just four states carried out more than three-fourths of the executions in the United States this year, while another 23 states have not put an inmate to death in 10 years, an anti-capital punishment group reports.
A Texas death row inmate scheduled to die later Tuesday for the killing of a police informant 20 years ago is hoping the U.S. Supreme Court agrees with his attorneys that he’s too mentally impaired to qualify for execution.
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has stopped this week’s scheduled execution of a convicted killer. Steven Staley was set to die for shooting death of a Fort Worth restaurant manager.
The Supreme Court has lifted its hold on the execution of a Texas man convicted in the Fort Worth shooting death of a woman in 2002.
The duties and mission of a troubled state panel caught up in the review of a contested arson finding in a death penalty case would be cleared up under legislation approved by the Texas Senate on Friday.
