"Texas Governor Perry disrupts panel looking into Willingham capital case"That's the title of Doug Berman's post over at Sentencing Law and Policy on this case, in which serious questions have been raised about the forensic evidence that led to execution. The governor previously denied a stay of execution that would have allowed further, pre-mortem analysis. Other posts are at Crime and Consequences (expressing skepticism about the innocence claim) and by Jonathan Adler at The Volokh Conspiracy.
