"Kentucky Halts Lethal Injections Until Hearings"

The A.P. story is on the New York Times website here:

Executions are suspended in Kentucky after the state said Friday that it would not appeal a ruling that found it had failed to follow proper administrative procedures when it adopted its lethal injection method.
