Supreme Court halts Texas execution

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an order Tuesday morning halting the execution of Texas death row inmate Cleve Foster.

The  justices issued an order granting a stay of execution for Cleve Foster about eight hours before his scheduled lethal injection.

The Gulf War veteran was convicted along with another man of the 2002 murder of  Nyanuer  "Mary" Pal, a Sudanese immigrant he met at a Fort Worth  bar.

    @Phillip: relax bud. Just a kid. I generally agree with 70-80% of your posts and the manor to which you respect others on here. However I do think some of the names I mentioned qualify.

    Lady Rancher!!!
    FYI I a born on a ranch, My grandfather was the county Docter. He brought me into this world. As I was growing up education and the big outside world took me everywhere . I speak 3 lauguages fluently. What about U. In school I studied political science and international business.I learned to ride a horse before I was 3 years old.
    Perhaps U should leave the ranch and get some world experience before U open your mouth and speak nonsense. NJ is cool, U should go back... OBAMA ROCKS!!!

    GOODNIGHT and GOOD luck!!
