    Seven of the nine witnesses who initially testified that Davis was the killer have recanted. There was no physical evidence presented at his trial, and no weapon was found. But Davis' petitions for a new trial have been denied


    This is a follow up to the thread about Georgia killing an innocent man.

    I'm really glad the Court did the right thing... putting that man to death under these circumstances would have been horrible.

    And I'd have a lot more sympathy for the McPhail family if they cared that the person who was going to be put to death was actually the person who did the crime.
