Despite a last ditch plea for a stay of execution, the State of Georgia and the US Spreme Court rejected every argument for Davis’ innocence, and executed him at 11:08pm tonight for the murder of an off-duty police officer back in 1989. With no physical or scientific evidence linking Davis to the crime, he was convicted on the testimony of nine witnesses, seven of whom have since recanted that testimony alleging manipulation by the police. One of the jurors who convicted Davis has also expressed doubt now that he was in fact the killer.
