High court refuses to lift stay of Ala. execution

The high court on Friday turned back a request by Alabama's attorney general to lift the stay that had been granted for 61-year-old Phillip Hallford.

Hallford was convicted in Dale County for the 1986 shooting
death of his 15-year-old daughter's boyfriend, 16-year-old Charles
Eddie Shannon.

He has been on death row at Holman Prison for about
22 years.
