Glossip friends, family react to news of stay

There was a lot of raw emotion from a family expecting to see a family member die today.

For the family of Richard Glossip, who feel like victims themselves in the process, they were dealt a heartbreaking blow when the Supreme Court denied a request to stop the execution.

Then a shout.

Word that the execution was, in fact, off.

Sobs of happiness just before what was going to be the family's final prayer.

Billie Joy Boyiddle is Glossip's niece. While there was no other foreseeable outcome, she says, she still had hope.

While celebrations went on outside, inside, families of both sides were kept in the dark.

But now, it's just a waiting game to see what happens for all involved.
