The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has ordered an indefinite stay of execution for Reed. Reed Supporter Lily Hughes says the court wants new evidence to be considered.

Hughes says those in the Reed camp are celebrating because this gets the new evidence and testimony Defense attorneys have been finding, will see their day in court and hopefully lead to a retrial.
