The execution for Alabama Death Row inmate Doyle Lee Hamm is back on after an appeals court vacated a lower court's stay.
Records show the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals granted the state of Alabama's emergency motion to vacate Hamm's stay, which was issued earlier this month by U.S. District Judge Karon O Bowdre.
"We conclude the district court abused its discretion by staying Hamm's execution without making sufficient findings to establish a significant possibility of success on the merits," the court wrote in its order issued Tuesday afternoon.
