Lethal Injection of Alabama Man Stayed by Federal Judge

ALABAMA - An Alabama man's lethal injection sentence stayed in Federal Court on Tuesday.

Doyle Lee Hamm's lawyer argued the sentence was unconstitutionally cruel due to Hamm being diagnosed with both Lymphoma and Hepatitis C. His lawyer also claimed Lee's battle with Cancer made the execution inhumane.

Hamm was convicted for the murder on a motel clerk in 1987.

He is scheduled for execution on February 22.
