Disposition

Application denied.

Justice Brennan and Justice Marshall dissenting:

Adhering to our views that the death penalty is in all circumstances cruel and unusual punishment prohibited by the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments, Gregg v. Georgia, 428 U.S. 153, 227, 231 (1976), we would grant the application for stay of execution in order to give applicant time to file a petition for a writ of certiorari, and would grant the petition and vacate the death sentence in this case.

Justice Blackmun and Justice Stevens would grant the application for stay.
