GEORGIA----stay of impending execution

U.S. Supreme Court grants stay of execution to Georgia killer


The U.S. Supreme Court tonight granted a stay of execution to condemned killer
Keith Tharpe 3 1.2 hours after he was scheduled to be put to death by lethal
injection.

The court’s justices were apparently concerned about claims that one of
Tharpe’s jurors was racist and sentenced Tharpe to death because he was
African-American.
