Default Fed Judge Grants Reprieve for Nevada Man

A federal judge in Nevada has called off the Feb. 1 execution of a condemned prison inmate who came within 34 minutes of being put to death in 2005.


U.S. District Court Judge Robert Jones in Reno issued an order Friday blocking the execution of 37-year-old Robert Lee McConnell pending a hearing on an appeal McConnell filed two days earlier.

A Nevada corrections spokeswoman said Monday she had no immediate confirmation of the stay. Monday was the Martin Luther King Day holiday.

McConnell was convicted in Washoe County District Court of the 2002 murder of his ex-girlfriend’s fiance and of raping the woman at her Sun Valley home.

The former Reno auto salesman was granted a reprieve shortly before he was scheduled to die in June 2005.
