OKLAHOMA CITY - Gov. Brad Henry has extended a stay of execution for an Oklahoma death row inmate while he wraps up his review of a clemency recommendation.
Henry announced the action on Thursday in the case of Richard Tandy Smith, who was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1986 drug-related shooting death of John Cederlund.
Smith was scheduled to die by lethal injection on April 8. Henry reset the execution date for May 4 and has now rescheduled it for May 25.
