Execution Scheduled For Death Row Inmate

A March 6th execution date has been set for an Arizona prison inmate who's been on death row since 1985. 

The Arizona Supreme Court granted a motion for an execution warrant Tuesday (9) for 70-year-old Edward Harold Schad.  Schad's attorneys asked the state's high court to deny the execution warrant request or at least delay ruling on it. 

Schad was convicted in the killing of 74-year-old Lorimer "Leroy" Grove of Bisbee, who disappeared during a drive to Washington state. His strangled body was found south of Prescott in August, 1978.  Schad was arrested a month later, driving the victim's car.
