Stay Denied to Oklahoma Murderer

Francisco Morales and Maria Yanez were murdered in their Oklahoma City home in 1993, with three of their young children present, during a home invasion.  The US Supreme Court today denied a stay of execution to one of the murderers, George Ochoa.  No dissent is noted.

AP had this story yesterday, following the denial of a stay by the Federal District Court and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Update (Dec. 5):  Rachel Petersen has this post-execution story for the McAlester News-Capital.
