Alabama AG Urges Court to Deny Execution Request
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama attorney general's office is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to deny a stay of execution for convicted murderer Thomas Arthur, who faces lethal injection next week.

Arthur has waited too late to challenge Alabama's method of execution and the high court should not block his execution, Assistant Attorney General Clay Crenshaw said in a court filing Thursday.

Arthur, 65, was sentenced to death for the 1982 killing of Troy Wicker, 35, of Muscle Shoals. His execution is set for next Thursday at Holman prison near Atmore.
