Supreme Court halts another execution

The U.S. Supreme Court today halted the execution of Mark Dean Schwab, a Florida man convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of 11-year-old Junny Rios-Martinez.

This is the latest of several stays of execution by the Court in recent weeks after it agreed to consider whether a three-drug injection cocktail used in Kentucky and other states is unconstitutional in the case Baze v. Rees.
