Default Execution postponed for John Battaglia


A former Dallas accountant awaiting execution on death row received a last-minute reprieve Wednesday, hours before he was scheduled to be put to death for murdering his daughters while their mother listened on the phone.

John Battaglia, 60, won an appeal with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which stayed the execution so his attorney could pursue claims of mental incompetency.

Wooo! Hopefully he gets his sentence overturned. Life imprisonment sounds fitting. Will be keeping John in my thoughts in the days ahead.
