WASHINGTON (AP) - A Virginia death row inmate convicted of hiring another man to kill his ex-girlfriend is planning to ask Gov. Terry McAuliffe to halt his execution.
The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to hear Ivan Teleguz's appeal.
Attorney Michael Williams said in an email that Teleguz will now ask the Democratic governor for clemency. Williams said McAuliffe will decide "whether to prevent the Commonwealth from executing an innocent man."
A McAuliffe spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
