GA Supreme Court denies stay of execution

October 16, 2007

The days may be getting shorter for the longest-serving inmate on Georgia's death row. Today the state Supreme Court denied Jack Alderman's motion for a stay of execution.

Alderman was convicted of murdering his wife in 1974. For the past 33 years, he's been fighting that.

The state Corrections Department wants to execute him Friday night (October 19).

The Georgia Supreme Court says it will abide by any possible ruling before then by the US Supreme Court on the legality of lethal injections.
