See the court's ruling here.
Bible was convicted in the 1988 murder of 9-year-old Jennifer Wilson. While Wilson was on vacation with her family in Flagstaff, Bible kidnapped her, molested her, and then bludgeoned her to death.
Bible never admitted guilt.
Yesterday, the Ningh U.S Circuit Court of Appeals also denied Bible's request for a stay of execution. His lawyers argue that he should not be put to death until hairs found at the crime scene used against him at trial undergo DNA testing.
On Monday, Arizona's clemency board also denied Bible's request for a stay, noting in its decision that he's "the worst of the worst."
Bible's been on death row for over 20 years.
