California Supreme Court ends legal battle over execution

Sep 30, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
The state calls off the execution of Albert Greenwood Brown Jr. hours after justices refuse to change appeals deadlines. The execution would have been the state's first in five years.

California's effort to carry out its first execution in nearly five years collapsed Wednesday when the state Supreme Court ended a furious legal battle, giving a convicted rapist and murderer a reprieve that could last until at least next year.
