Execution back on track, just delayed by 55 minutes

After just a brief holdup, today's scheduled execution of Paul Ezra Rhoades is now back on track, scheduled to occur 55 minutes later than originally planned. "Procedures have started again," state Corrections spokesman Jeff Ray just announced. "Attorney General Wasden will be here after the completion of the procedures to explain what happened."
