Gov. Brad Henry has issued a 30-day stay of execution so that he can further review the case of convicted killer Kevin Young. Last week, the state Pardon and Parole Board recommended that Henry spare Young's life. He was scheduled to die on July 22. It is reported that "during last week's clemency hearing, an apologetic Young told parole board members he has become a Christian and believes he can still be of service to society from prison."
