Alabama AG asks Supreme Court to allow execution

The attorney general's office has appealed to the nation's highest court to carry out the execution of a condemned killer from Dale County who's been on Alabama's death row for more than 20 years.

Sixty-one-year-old Phillip Hallford was sentenced to die for killing his teenage daughter's boyfriend in 1987.

He's scheduled to be executed March 19th but an appeals court ordered a stay because hall ford is challenging lethal injection and a hearing is set for March 31st.

Attorney General Troy King's office Monday asked U.S Supreme to lift the stay but the high court has not yet ruled on the request.
