A Mississippi inmate has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his execution set for 6 p.m. at
the state penitentiary in Parchman.

The attorney for 34-year-old Jan Michael Brawner filed the petition early Tuesday.

Brawner is scheduled to be executed for the
deaths of his 3-year-old daughter, his ex-wife and her parents.

The Mississippi Supreme Court Monday declined to stop the execution.

Brawner was sentenced to death for the April 25, 2001, shooting deaths of his daughter, Paige, his ex-wife, Barbara Craft, and her parents, Carl and Jane Craft.

Brawner killed them in their in Tate County home, stole about $300 and used his former mother-in-law's wedding ring to propose to his girlfriend the same day, according to court records.
