The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals on Friday blocked the execution of Rodney Reed.

The court granted Reed’s motion to stay the execution and sent the case back to a lower court to consider his claims that the state presented false testimony in violation of due process and that he is innocent.

Reed was scheduled to be executed on November 20.
