Man On Florida Death Row's Execution Postponed Indefinitely

The execution of a man who's been on Florida's death row for almost a quarter of a century has been delayed indefinitely.  

Jose Antonio Jimenez was scheduled to be put to death on Tuesday for fatally stabbing a 63-year-old woman in Miami-Dade County in October 1992.  

The Florida Supreme Court granted a stay of execution late Friday but did not give a reason for postponing the death sentence that was unanimously approved by a 12-member jury.  

Attorneys for Jimenez had raised several issues, including the recent discovery of police records that were not provided to them, and the constitutionality of Florida's lethal injection protocol.
