Henry Dunn was given a stay Monday afternoon by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Dunn admitted to taking part in the murder of 23-year old Nicholas West after kidnapping him from Bergfeld Park. Nicholas was later found shot at least nine times and left in a gravel pit in Noonday.
Dunn admitted that he and two other men targeted West because West was homosexual. Dunn's case was at the 5th Circuit Court. The court decided to postpone the execution because more time was needed to review the case.
