    ...by the defense lawyer? Only you said that. But if you bothered to click through the links and read all the background, you'd find that's not the case.

    Personally, I find it interesting that no amount of evidence is ever good enough for certain folks to stay an execution, even when there's good reason to believe the condemned may be innocent.

      1. still haven't seen where Coles confessed to the crime. Closest I get is where Rep. Lewis states that Coles can't recant without implicating himself.
      1. Enders: about the contradictory evidence showing up just before the execution: the evidence, the recantations have been out there for up to 5 years. If you look at the info out there, the signed recantations  occurred in 2002, 2003, etc. The information has been out there 5 years, and still, Davis hasn't been given the opportunity to present the exculpatory evidence. That chance is long overdue, and if he is executed, that chance will be lost. It's not a matter of "justice" any more, it's a matter of the state being on the verge of murdering a man who may well be innocent.

        Located the allegation of Coles confessing his role in the crime to three witnesses not allowed to testify on Davis' behalf at the bottom of one of the links....thanks....
