The highest courts in Arizona and the nation have cleared the way for the state to carry out its third execution in the last year on Wednesday, following a closely watched First Amendment fight over the secrecy surrounding lethal injection drugs.  Wood was sentenced to death for killing Debra Dietz and her father, Eugene Dietz, in 1989 at the family's automotive shop in Tucson.  (AP Photo)

Arizona's highest court on Wednesday temporarily halted the execution of the condemned inmate so it could consider a last-minute appeal. The Arizona Supreme Court said it would consider whether he received inadequate legal representation at his sentencing. The appeal also challenges the secrecy of the lethal injection process and the drugs that are used. (AP Photo)
