Gov. Bush Reinstates Death Warrant
  布什州长恢复死刑执行令
  By BILL KACZOR Associated Press Writer

  (AP) - TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-Gov. Jeb Bush reinstated a death warrant Thursday for a condemned killer, despite a ruling this year from the U.S. Supreme Court that the inmate could challenge the state's method of lethal injection.
  【美联社】 佛罗里达州,塔拉哈西——尽管今年联邦最高法院公布过一项囚犯挑战佛罗里达州注射死刑的裁决,布什州长还是于星期四就一名杀人犯恢复了一项死刑执行令。
  Prison officials scheduled his execution for next month. The attorney for convicted killer Clarence Hill said he would ask a federal appellate court for a stay on the execution so the Supreme Court decision can be carried out.
  监狱官员安排于下个月对杀人犯执行死刑。杀人犯克拉伦斯•希尔的律师说,他将请求联邦受诉法院延缓行刑,以使联邦最高法院的裁决能够得到贯彻执行。
  Hill was strapped to a gurney and his arms attached to intravenous tubes set to deliver a fatal cocktail of three drugs when the court in January blocked his execution.
  今年一月,法院封锁了希尔的行刑消息。那时他被捆在行刑椅上,他的胳膊已被插入管子,这些管子会输送含有三种药品的致命鸡尾酒。
  In June the high court unanimously ruled Hill and other condemned inmates could make last-minute claims that the chemicals used are too painful and amount to cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
  今年六月,最高法院一致裁定,希尔和其它罪犯可作最后的申诉——被用于注射死刑的化学药品让人非常的痛苦乃至残忍,这项非同寻常的惩罚有违美国宪法。
  Bush issued his new order to execute Hill after receiving a letter from state Attorney General Charlie Crist telling him that Hill's stay of execution had expired.
  布什州长在接到州首席检察官克里斯特的信后——克里斯特在信中说,希尔的死刑延缓期已经届满——签署了他的最新命令,即对希尔执行死刑。
  "I find it troubling," said D. Todd Doss, Hill's lawyer. "We have a clear 9-0 opinion from the United States Supreme Court."
   “我觉得这很麻烦,”希尔的律师D•托德•多斯说,“我们已经获得了联邦最高法院9:0通过的一致性意见。”
  The high court returned the case to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Doss said he expects the appellate court to send it back to a federal trial court to hear the lethal injection challenge.
  最高法院将这个案子送回了位于亚特兰大的第十一巡回受诉法院。多斯说,他希望受诉法院将该案送回联邦审理法院以审理这起致命注射剂挑战案。
  Hill was convicted of fatally shooting Pensacola police officer Stephen Taylor and wounding his partner during a 1982 bank robbery.
  希尔在1982年一起银行抢劫案中杀害了彭沙科拉(Pensacola)的斯蒂芬•泰勒警官,并重伤了另一名警官。

  "blocked his execution" means (supreme court) stopped the execution, "法院封锁了希尔的行刑消息" is definitely wrong interpretation.
  
  "cocktail" here refers to mixture of three drugs, it has nothing to do with cocktails served in bar.
  
  HTH.
