Ore. Supreme Court blocks planned execution
Wednesday, June 29, 2011
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The state Supreme Court has blocked a planned execution in Oregon until there's more consideration of the inmate's mental competence.
The court agreed with a filing by the Oregon Capital Resource Center, which said a neuropsychologist found Gary Haugen incompetent. Haugen's execution was set for Aug. 16. He had asked that appeals be ended.
