Schwarzenegger delays execution by 45 hours

SAN FRANCISCO

Corrections Department spokeswoman Terry Thornton says the delay means Albert Greenwood Brown is now scheduled to die by lethal injection at 9 p.m. Thursday. He initially was scheduled for execution at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.

Thornton says the governor told corrections officials the delay would allow appeals courts time to weigh in on Brown's case and give him time to consider a clemency request.
