GREAT NEWS!!!! Troy Davis Wins a Stay on His Execution!!!
Condemned Ga. Killer Wins 90-Day Stay

HARRY R. WEBER | July 16, 2007 07:53 PM EST |


ATLANTA A man convicted of killing a police officer won a reprieve a day before his scheduled execution, after his lawyers argued that several witnesses had recanted or changed their testimony.

The state Board of Pardons and Paroles on Monday granted a 90-day stay of execution to Troy Davis, 38, who was convicted of killing a Savannah police officer in 1989.

He had faced a Tuesday execution date before the board's decision, which came after less than an hour of deliberation. The stay means the execution will be on hold while the board weighs the evidence presented as part of Davis' request for clemency.
