Albert Greenwood Brown had yet another stay of execution handed to him, this time care of the California Supreme Court. The Chronicle reports: "The justices unanimously denied the state's request to allow new procedures for lethal injections at San Quentin State Prison to take effect by 7 p.m. Thursday, two hours before the 56-year-old inmate is scheduled to die for the 1980 rape and murder of a 15-year-old Riverside girl."

Brown was scheduled to die Thursday night. He was convicted of murdering Susan Jordan in 1980 in Riverside. The 15-year-old, according to the LA Times, "was walking to school when Brown pulled her into an orange grove, raped her and strangled her with her shoelaces." He later calledJordan's parents and told them where to find her body.
