Guv Stays ‘Innocent’ Man’s Execution

The Supreme Court declined to spare Oklahoma inmate Richard Glossip's life, shortly after which Governor Mary Fallin ordered a stay on the execution until November 6. He was set to be executed this afternoon after being convicted of beating his boss to death in 1997. New evidence has suggested that Glossip was not in the fact the person who actually killed his boss but rather that his coworker Justin Sneed did. Sneed confessed to the crime and also allegedly bragged to other prisoners about setting Glossip up. Earlier this month, an appellate court in the state delayed the execution for two weeks. Glossip was denied an additional 60-day stay Monday and the execution was scheduled for 3 p.m. today.
