The state Supreme Court today denied condemned killer Rickey Dale Newman`s personal plea to dissolve a stay of execution. Without comment, the high court left in place the stay it issued four days before he was to be put to death September 28th. In conflicting motions last month, Newman asked to be put to death and insisted he wanted to prove he is innocent of murder. The high court has not set a hearing date in the case. The 47-year-old Newman was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in the February 2001 stabbing death of Marie Cholette. The victim was a homeless woman whose body was found under a makeshift tent at a place where transients were camped in a wooded area of Crawford County.
