From the AP:
The U.S. Supreme Court granted a last-minute stay of execution Monday for a man convicted of fatally stabbing the manager of a pool hall with a pair of scissors.
Robin Lovitt, 41, had been scheduled for execution at 9 p.m. Monday.
The stay will remain in place until the court returns in October from a three-month break. Justices will announce then whether they will hear Lovitt's appeal or allow Virginia to execute him.
