Stays in Ohio & Virgnia
Execution dates for Jerome Henderson in Ohio & Percy Walton in Virginia scheduled for this week are now off. The SCOTUS has upheld a stay entered last week by the Sixth Circuit for Mr. Henderson's execution in Ohio. In Virginia Governor Kaine has ordered the execution date for Percy Walton to be reset for June 2008(with the possibility of additional stays) due to concerns about whether Mr. Walton is competent to proceed.
