decided: May 2, 1994.
ROUGEAU, PAUL, PETITIONER
COLLINS, DIR., TEXAS DCJ
Rehnquist, Blackmun, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg.
The application for stay of execution of sentence of death presented to Justice Scalia and by him referred to the Court is denied. The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.
Justice Blackmun dissenting:
Adhering to my view that the death penalty cannot be imposed fairly within the constraints of our Constitution, see my dissent in Callins v. Collins, 510 U.S. , (1994), I would grant the application for stay of execution and the petition for certiorari and would vacate the death sentence in this case.
Justice Stevens and Justice Ginsburg would grant the application for stay of execution.
