Troy Davis Stay Of Execution Denied By High Court Troy Davis has been convicted of murder and is sentenced to be executed this evening in Atlanta, GA. All witnesses who originally testified against him, have withdrawn their testimonies, claiming they had been coerced. There is insufficient evidence at this time to convict him. He has been granted a stay once before, due to public outcry. The request for a stay this evening has been denied. He is scheduled to be executed later this evening.

Update on Troy Davis: The case is pending. There is no execution scheduled. It will probably go to the Supreme Court. Don't know when.
