FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 01, 2008
Stenson execution update

The Washington Supreme Court has denied the State's motion to vacate the stay of execution.  The court denied the motion without prejudice, indicating the State may renew the motion before the superior court in 90 days.  This means the execution will not occur on December 3, 2008.  Rather, the execution date will reset in the future once the stays are lifted.
