Supreme Court considering appeal that would block execution of a Texas man

Posted: Updated:

Texas - The Supreme Court is considering an appeal that would block the execution of a Texas man.

Former Texas Tech student Vaughn Ross is set to die today for a 2001 double murder.

He was convicted for shooting a university dean and an 18-year-old woman who was with him in a car. 

Ross' attorneys say lawyers at his trial and in earlier stages of his appeals were deficient and his case should be reviewed.
