Supreme Court Denies Stay of Execution To Troy Davis

The Supreme Court has denied a stay of execution to Troy Davis. Davis was convicted of murder and sentenced to die almost two decades ago. Since then, seven of the witnesses against him have recanted their testimony, and some have even implicated Sylvester “Redd” Coles, a witness who testified that Davis was the shooter.



Democracy Now reports that Davis has been killed. The time of death was 11:08.
