The Arizona Supreme Court this morning REFUSED to “stay” the execution warrant against Aaron Gunches. 

The sister of his victim asked on Friday, saying it’s not clear whether the warrant EXPIRES if it is not carried out by the state on the date certain of April 6. 

The Supreme Court did not explain its reasoning in the two Orders. 

(It is possible that there was some discussion about considering the Motion to Stay the warrant, and asking for a response from the State: the file name is titled “Briefing Order”.)
