Arizona court schedules Oct. 9 execution for Schad

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday scheduled an Oct. 9 execution for 71-year-old death-row inmate Edward Harold Schad Jr. for the 1978 killing of a Bisbee man, 74-year-old Lorimer "Leroy" Grove.
 
The state Supreme Court considered Schad's case last week but postponed action until Tuesday. In the meantime, the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday denied a request for a rehearing for Schad.
 
Schad's scheduled execution last March was postponed when the U.S. Supreme Court denied the state's request to lift a lower court's order blocking the execution.
 
The U.S. Supreme Court then reinstated Schad's death sentence in June. That cleared the way for the state to press ahead with execution plans.
 
Grove's body was found in Yavapai County. He had left Bisbee on a trip to Washington state.
