A stay has been issued for the April 22 execution of Nickolus Johnson, a spokesperson for the Department of Corrections confirmed yesterday. This is the second execution to be delayed after Billy Ray Irick's January date was postponed. Michele Wojciechowski, the communications director at the administrative offices of the courts, told the Nashville Scene the stay was likely. “When a case goes up on direct appeal, they have one year to file a motion for post-conviction relief," she said.
