FILE - In this Aug 16, 2010, file photo, Billy Ray Irick, who is on death row for raping and killing a 7-year-old girl in 1985, appears in a Knoxville, Tenn., courtroom. The state Supreme Court on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, ruled that Irick's execution scheduled for Oct. 7 should be put on hold while a challenge to the state's lethal injection and electrocution procedures works its way through the courts.
