Nevada Revised Statutes Section 176.445 - Procedure in Criminal Cases

Execution of judgment when defendant found sane. If it is found by the court that the convicted person is sane, the Director of the Department of Corrections must execute the judgment of death; but if the judgment has been stayed, as provided in NRS 176.425, the judge shall cause a certified copy of his order staying the execution of the judgment, together with a certified copy of his finding that the convicted person is sane, to be immediately forwarded by the clerk of the court to the clerk of the district court of the county in which the conviction was had, who shall give notice thereof to the district attorney of such county. Proceedings shall then be instituted in the last mentioned district court for the issuance of a new warrant of execution of the judgment of death in the manner provided in NRS 176.495.
