Russia begins carrying out airstrikes in Syria

Oklahoma governor delays Richard Glossip execution

Richard GlossipOklahoma death row inmate Richard Glossip received a temporary stay of execution from Gov. Mary Fallin on Wednesday just hours before he was scheduled to be killed. Earlier that day the U.S. Supreme Court refused to intervene in his case despite new evidence the inmate's lawyers say proves his innocence.

The executive order signed by Fallin postpones Glossip's execution date until Nov. 6. The order states that the delay will give the state's Department of Corrections time to determine whether potassium acetate, one of three drugs to be used in the lethal injection, "is compliant with the execution protocol." If the drug is found not to be compliant, then the state says it will obtain potassium chloride as a substitute before the Nov. 6 deadline.
