Execution drama building in Mississippi case

This extended post at SCOTUSblog and this AP story provides the latest news on the capital case from Mississippi, which could result tomorrow in the first execution in over a month in the wake of the Baze lethal injection cert grant.  In short form, it appears that the Supreme Court refused to review a state action denying a stay, but a parallel case coming through the federal courts is still pending.

UPDATE: How Appealing has collected some additional media coverage here, including this thoughtful piece from Linda Greenhouse at the New York Times.
