Powell execution cleared by U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to halt the planned execution of Paul Warner Powell, who was sentenced to death for the murder and attempted rape of a Prince William County girl in 1999.

Powell’s death was scheduled for July, but that date was canceled when the high court said it needed more time to review the case. No new execution date has been set.
