Governor George Allen has spared the life of a Virginia Beach killer who was scheduled to die at 9 tonight.
It's the first time Allen has intervened in an execution.
Ten have been carried out under his watch.
The Governor says he gave NO consideration to juror affadavits that they may have wrongly convicted Joseph Patrick Payne in 1986.
Payne faced lethal injection for burning another inmate to death while incarcerated for a prior murder.
The Governor says there's ample evidence of Payne's guilt -- but he commuted Payne's sentence to life in prison.
A spokesman says Allen gave NO reason for sparing Payne's life.
