MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama is in search of a brand new execution date for an inmate who was spared final week when the clock struck midnight before a divided U.S. Supreme Courtroom stated the lethal injection might proceed.
The state on Monday requested the Alabama Supreme Courtroom to schedule an execution for 46-yr-previous Christopher Lee Worth.
A federal decide postponed Worth’s lethal injection last week. The high courtroom overturned the keep, but the choice happened two hours after the warrant scheduling his execution mechanically expired at midnight.
The state asked the courtroom to set an execution on April 25 or Might 2 in the “pursuits of justice” and put aside a rule requiring 30 days’ notice.
Worth was convicted within the 1991 stabbing demise of pastor Invoice Lynn.
