AP is reporting that
Texas death row inmate Rogelio Cannady will avoid execution Wednesday over a 1993 prison killing.
Cannady’s execution date was withdrawn today by Judge Ronald Yeager.
Cannady’s recently appointed appeals lawyer asked for more time to review the case. The judge ordered a March hearing to reset the punishment date.
Cannady has been sending a friend daily entries on a diary that his friend has been posting online at Death Watch Journal.
