(UPDATE) WADE LAY GRANTED A STAY OF EXECUTION

Wade Lay was first in line to be executed in 2022.


Wade was on death row for killing a 36 yr old security officer by the name of Kenneth Anderson in an attempted robbery. This crime happened in 2004 and he was sentenced to death in 2005.


His execution date was scheduled for January 6th 2022, but a Pittsburg County judge agreed with his lawyer on an appeal point that stated he was not competent to stand trial but the trial commenced anyway.


On November 29th of this year, a judge ordered a competency trial and a doctor said that Wade lacked rational understanding of the reason on why he was being executed. When he is asked, he rambles on about the Bible and never gives a clear answer. Because of the doctors report, the judge felt the need to order the stay of execution.


There is going to be another trial where his competence will be brought up. Until then... Wade will not be the first to be executed in 2022.
