"Hank" Skinner: US Supreme Court stays execution
Issued on: Modified:
He had just 45 minutes left to live when he was given a stay of execution. The US Supreme Court has once again spared Hank Skinner, citing the many discrepancies in the prosecution's case against him. Skinner's lawyers have been appealing for evidence from the crime scene to undergo DNA testing, but so far, the request has always been rejected.
