ATMORE-Condemned killer Tommy Arthur received his seventh stay of execution on Thursday around 11:00 pm.

While some say Arthur is too old to execute , others say justice has definitely been delayed in the Troy Wicker murder case.

Prison officials said Arthur refused breakfast and declined a last meal on Thursday.

The officials stay of execution was signed by Justice Clarence Thomas.  It came in at 10:55pm.

The stay will give the court time to review Alabama’s execution method.

It will reportedly be around 45 days before another execution date can be set.
