ABC News excerpt
The U.S. Supreme Court denied a last-minute stay of execution for Troy Davis after a delay to weigh arguments from Davisâ€™ legal team and the state of Georgia over whether his execution should be blocked.
The courtâ€™s decision to deny the stay came after 10 p.m. ET, more than three hours after Davisâ€™ execution originally was scheduled today. The court did not comment on its decision.
The execution now is expected to occur by 11 p.m. ET.
