Georgia prison officials have delayed the first filmed execution in the US since 1992.

Andrew DeYoung was convicted of murdering his parents and sister. His attorneys sought a stay, arguing that the new lethal injection drug caused needless suffering.

Another death row inmate won a court ruling that DeYoung's execution should be filmed to provide evidence of the suffering. The state is appealing against that ruling.
