St. Louis, MO (KSDK) -- The hearing that could overturn the sentence for a Missouri death row inmate is on hold.

The judge issued a delay in Reggie Clemons' hearing due to technical and attorney issues.

The hearing is set to resume tomorrow.

That's when Clemons could take the stand in his own defense.

In 1991, Clemons was convicted of killing Robin and Julie Kerry.

The 19 and 20-year-old sisters were raped and thrown from the old Chain of Rocks Bridge.

The prosecution wants to question Clemons about the events surround the girls deaths.

Clemons' lawyers say he will only talk about how police forced him to confess.
