Attorneys working on 2 fronts to spare death row inmate

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Attorneys for an Oklahoma death row inmate who won a two-week reprieve from his scheduled execution are working on two legal fronts in an effort to save their client's life.
 
While one team of lawyers for Richard Glossip is trying to convince a state appeals court that their client is innocent, another group of public defenders is in federal court again challenging the three-drug formula that will be used to kill him.
 
Glossip was just hours away from being executed on Wednesday when the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals ordered his execution halted for two weeks so they could have time to review a lengthy legal filing his lawyers had filed a day earlier.
