No stay for SKillicorn, execution still set for 12:01 a.m. Wednesday

The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected convicted killer Dennis Skillicorn's request for a stay today.

The one-page order rejected Skillicorn's attempt to file a second habeas corpus petition, and motions for him to file as a pauper and to appoint a lawyer, in addition to rejecting the stay of execution.

Skillicorn is scheduled to be executed 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.
