Convicted Murder Receives Stay of Execution

A federal appeals court is granting multiple-murderer Danial Lee Siebert's request for a stay of execution.

Siebert was scheduled to die by lethal injection Thursday.

He claimed his cancer medication would counteract with a lethal injection, inflicting unnecessary pain.

Now. a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is reversing a Montgomery district judge's order and is now granting the stay of execution.

Siebert, 53, has been on Alabama's death row for more than 20 years and has terminal pancreatic cancer.
