Ala. Supreme Court won't stop execution

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.

    You know what another sad story here is? That is almost 20 years later and he is still on death row. What a way to waste our tax dollars. No wonder our legal system is so messed up.
