LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Prosecutors are asking the Kentucky
Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to stop the execution of
condemned killer Ralph Baze.
In filings with the high court, the Kentucky Attorney General's
office says the decision to halt the Sept. 25 lethal injection is
flawed and Baze's appeal was frivolous.
Justices issued a stay of execution on Wednesday, saying they
want to hear arguments about whether Baze's trial was improperly
moved and two other issues related to how lethal injection is
Baze was sentenced to death for the 1992 slayings of Powell
County Sheriff Steve Bennett and Deputy Arthur Briscoe.
