MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court won't block Thursday's scheduled lethal injection for 44-year-old Willie McNair.
The court denied a stay of execution in an order Wednesday morning.
McNair faces execution at 6 p.m. Thursday at Holman Prison for killing 68-year-old Ella Foy Riley of Abbeville on May 21, 1990.
