RICHMOND (AP) — Attorneys for a man scheduled to be executed next week for killing a Brunswick County convenience store owner during a 1998 robbery asked the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday to review the case.
RICHMOND — Gov. Timothy M. Kaine ordered a delay in the execution of a man who was scheduled to be put to death last night for the 2001 murder of a co-worker.
Though the court upheld Kentucky's lethal injection procedure, Emmett claims Virginia's method is unconstitutional because it does not ensure sufficient anesthesia before the paralyzing and heart-stopping drugs are administered.
Mr. Gott, Emmett said, failed to do a thorough investigation and never uncovered information about his abusive childhood — information, Emmett argued, that could have convinced the jury to spare him the death penalty.
