Back in April I posted about Troy Davis. See the post here.
Well it’s great news, the US Supreme Court has now ordered an evidentiary hearing for Davis.
Savannah police officer Mark Allen MacPhail was murdered in 1991 and Davis was convicted of the crime though the authorities failed to produce any physical evidence or a murder weapon. Seven of the nine witnesses have now changed their initial testimonies and one of the remaining witnesses might even be the actual murderer.
See the full story here on the Amnesty International website. Thanks to everyone who voiced their concern that justice may not have been done and that Davis is owed at least the chance to be heard.
