|Death row inmate set to be executed April 25 loses appeal|
|By richmond.com- Frank Green|
A federal appeals court has rejected a bid to stay the execution of Ivan Teleguz set for April 25, setting up a clemency bid to Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
The unanimous three-judge panel of the Richmond-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the stay and a related request without explanation Thursday.
The decision was reached, said his lawyers, “despite strong evidence that he is innocent. Teleguz had asked the Court to temporarily stay his execution so that the Supreme Court of the United States could have adequate time to review his appeal before Virginia executes him.”
