Convicted Dallas-area cop killer wins reprieve

September 23, 2009 6:39:44 PM PDT
The U.S. Supreme Court has stopped the scheduled Thursday execution of Kenneth Mosley, who was to die for the fatal shooting of a suburban Dallas police officer. In a ruling Wednesday evening, justices said they agreed to halt the lethal injection until it resolves an Alabama case that Mosley's attorney said could affect his case.

The 51-year-old Mosley was condemned for the Feburary 1997 shooting death of Garland Officer Michael David Moore. Moore was responding to a 911 call about a robbery at a bank.
