Kenneth Mosley's Executon Postponed Because of Perry/Dewhurst Travel Plans

Kenneth Mosley, set for execution this week in Huntsville, has had his execution rescheduled for Sept 24, apparently because both Rick Perry and David Dewhurst will be out of Texas this Thursday. (We don't have details on where the two are traveling, but maybe someone should check the Appalachian Trail.)

A state district judge has moved Mosley's execution date to September.

The 50-year-old death row inmate had faced lethal injection Thursday for the fatal shooting of Garland police officer Michael Moore during a bank robbery 12 years ago.

A state district judge in Dallas has reset Mosley's execution for Sept. 24.

From the DMN' Crime blog:

The execution has been postponed until September 24 at the request of the Dallas County District Attorney's office.

Apparently both Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst are both scheduled to be out of the state this Thursday and one or the other is supposed to be in the state when an execution is held.
