State Supreme Court postpones Knoxville native's execution
WVLT Friday September 26, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A death row inmate has been granted a reprieve from an Oct. 7 execution date. On Thursday, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that Billy Ray Irick's execution should be put on hold pending a legal challenge to the state's lethal injection and electrocution procedures. Tennessee is the only state that allows itself to use the electric chair against an inmate's will, when lethal injection drugs aren't available. Irick was convicted of the rape and murder of a 7-year-old Knoxville girl he was babysitting. The 56-year-old is one of 11 death row inmates arguing in a lawsuit that the state has no way to ensure the purity and potency of the injection drug pentobarbital. The inmates also claim that use of the electric chair amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.
