US court denies appeal by Ariz. death row inmate


PHOENIX (AP) - A federal appeals court and a federal court in Phoenix both have rejected several appeals by an Arizona death row inmate scheduled to be executed Wednesday.
A majority of active judges of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco declined Monday to rehear an appeal on behalf of Edward Schad and also denied a request for a stay of execution pending a new clemency hearing.
U.S. District Judge Roslyn Silver in Phoenix later ruled that there was insufficient reason to grant Schad injunctive relief over questions concerning the drug used in Arizona's executions.

Lawyers for the 71-year-old Schad were worried the state may have expired, non-FDA approved drugs.
Schad faces a death sentence for the 1978 killing of 74-year-old Lorimer "Leroy" Grove of Bisbee.
