Supremo del estado de Washington suspende ejecución prevista para hoy

Washington, 13 mar - El Tribunal Supremo del estado de Washington suspendió hoy la ejecución de un hombre que hace 18 años asesinó a una mujer, informaron hoy fuentes judiciales de EE.UU.

La ejecución estaba prevista para hoy, y fue suspendida después de que los abogados de Cal Coburn Brown cuestionaran la constitucionalidad del método de inyección con que se aplica el castigo.

"Estoy extremadamente agradecido de que el Supremo nos haya concedido el aplazamiento. Era lo correcto", señaló Suzanne Elliot, uno de los abogados de Brown, de 50 años.

La decisión del tribunal se decidió con 5 votos a favor y 4 en contra.

Brown fue condenado a muerte en 1993 por el asalto, violación y asesinato de Holly Washa, una mujer de 22 años.
