Execution in Washington State Cancelled

Washington's corrections department has cancelled the scheduled execution of Darold Stenson, and a new date will not be scheduled for at least 90 days.

Patricia Murphy from KUOW, Seattle's local NPR affiliate, gives a really understandable, comprehensive analysis of what happened in the case in an audio clip at this link. The clip is from a week ago so does not go into all of the twists and turns, but it will fill you in more fully than any newspaper story I've read on this issue so far.
