WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court is delaying the execution of a Texas man who says DNA testing could clear him of the triple slaying that has sent him to death row.

The justices' order could allow Hank Skinner access to evidence that he says could demonstrate his innocence.

He's accused in the deaths of his girlfriend and her two adult sons at their home in the Texas Panhandle town of Pampa on New Year's Eve in 1993.
