Arizona court orders briefing on execution motion

The Arizona Supreme Court wants the state to respond to legal briefs filed on behalf of a death row inmate before the justices decide whether to order his execution.

The court on Tuesday gave the state until Dec. 30 to file a response to the briefs filed on behalf of Daniel Wayne Cook. The state had filed a motion asking the Supreme Court to issue a warrant of execution for Cook.

Cook was sentenced to death after being convicted of first-degree murder in a 1987 double killing in Lake Havasu City.
