Tennessee death row inmate gets 10-day reprieve from execution
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has granted death row inmate Edmund Zagorski a 10-day reprieve, marking the latest surprise development in the legal challenges surrounding the inmate, who has requested to die in the electric chair.
Zagorski had been set to be executed at 7 p.m. Thursday, but that was halted after the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday granted a stay over concerns of inadequate representation.
