Anthony Haynes, 33, was granted a stay of execution on Thursday, Oct. 18. 2012, for killing an off-duty Houston police sergeant.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday turned down a claim from a Harris County death row inmate convicted of killing a Houston police officer.

Anthony Haynes was sentenced to die after the 1998 slaying of off-duty Houston police Sgt. Kent Kincaid, who was gunned down in front of his wife in a traffic incident prosecutors said was part of a plan to rob motorists. Twenty years after the killing, Tuesday's decision brings the Houston man one step closer to a possible death date.
