JACKSON, Ga-Troy Davis’s execution scheduled for 7pm today has been delayed as the Supreme Court weighs Davis’s lawyers argument for a stay of execution.
The Supreme Court could decide any time today or within the next week whether Davis should be executed.
ABC News reports:
At 7:05 p.m. tonight, five minutes after his scheduled death, Davis’ supporters erupted in cheers, hugs and tears outside the jail in Jackson, Ga., as supporters believed Davis had been saved from the death penalty. But the Supreme Court only granted a temporary reprieve as it considers the decision.
