The US Supreme Court allowed Alabama's planned execution on Thursday of a man convicted of murdering a police officer to proceed, lifting a halt imposed by a lower court due to concerns about the drugs used in the state's lethal injection mix.

The court's decision came a few hours before Alabama planned to execute Torrey McNabb for the 1997 murder of a Montgomery police officer.
