Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- A federal appeals court has rejected a condemned Ohio inmate's request to delay his execution for killing a storekeeper while he challenge's the state's injection procedures.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday turned down the appeal from 37-year-old death row inmate Mark Brown.

Brown, scheduled to be executed Thursday, was sentenced to die for the 1994 fatal shooting of Isam Salman, owner of Midway Market in Youngstown.

He received a life term for killing clerk Hayder Al-Turk the same night.

Brown plans an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
