NEW ORLEANS — We have a follow up on a story we brought you Tuesday. There is new information about the execution of Beunka Adams. He's the East Texas man convicted of killing Kenneth Vandever during a gas station robbery in Rusk back in 2002. Adams was granted a stay of execution on Monday by U.S. District Judge Michael Schneider. But Tuesday the state filed an appeal, and just hours ago, KETK learned that a U.S. Appeals Court ruled in favor of the state. Watch the video for more on this story.
