Execution of former Texas drifter rescheduled

Retired Justice Adolpho A. Birch Jr., who heard the case as a specially designated member of the court, agreed that Reid's convictions should be upheld, but he disagreed with the death sentences.

He called on Tennessee's governor to follow the lead of other states and suspend lethal injections until further study. Executions have been stopped in Florida, California and Missouri because of lethal injection concerns.
