Schwarzenegger delays execution by 45 hours
SAN FRANCISCO -- California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has delayed by two days an execution that had been scheduled for Wednesday.
Corrections Department spokeswoman Terry Thornton says the delay means Albert Greenwood Brown is now scheduled to die by lethal injection at 9 p.m. Thursday. He initially was scheduled for execution at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.
Thornton says the governor told corrections officials the delay would allow appeals courts time to weigh in on Brown's case and give him time to consider a clemency request.
