An inmate facing execution on Wednesday in the Texas death chamber for the slaying of his family and received a delay due to the corona virus outbreak.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals on Monday stayed for John William, His design for a 60-day “in the light of the current health crisis, and the enormous resources that are required to perform.”

Hummel, 44, died in a row for the fatal stabbing of his pregnant wife, Joy Hummel, 45, and the fatal bludgeoning of his father-in-law, Clyde Walden, 57 years old, with a baseball bat in 2009.

The evidence showed he also used the bat to beat to death his 5-year-old daughter, Jodi Hummel. However, he was convicted of capital murder in the death of his wife and father-in-law.
