Rhoades execution on hold

Paul Ezra Rhoades' execution is on hold, due to a filing in 4th District Court, which is the state court here in the Boise area. “Right now the procedure has been delayed,” said state Corrections spokesman Jeff Ray. “Right now a judge is reviewing that,” Ray said, though there is no stay of the execution. As a result, Rhoades has remained in his isolation cell, and has not been brought into the execution chamber, though the procedure was scheduled to happen right now. Ray said at this point, if the go-ahead is given, the earliest the execution could begin is 9 a.m. Mountain time, an hour later than originally scheduled.
