Supreme Court Allows Oklahoma Execution to Proceed

Thursday, 15 Jan 2015 07:40 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court allowed Oklahoma to proceed with an execution planned for Thursday, which would be the state's first since a flawed execution in April 2014 led to widespread criticism.

In a decision released on Thursday, the court denied an appeal for a stay, with four of the nine justices dissenting. Oklahoma plans to execute convicted murderer and rapist Charles Warner later on Thursday.
