The U.S. Supreme Court this morning cleared the way for three states to reset execution dates for death row inmates who were granted last-minute stays while the court reviewed the constitutionality of Kentucky's lethal injection procedures.
The AP notes that it remains unclear whether the three men whose appeals were denied and seven others whose execution dates weren't imminent can appeal again to stop their executions.
