Adam Liptak's column in the New York Times is here. In part:
Mr. Kempfert is now certain that his father, William Macumber, is innocent. Arizona’s clemency board, citing Mr. Kempfert’s “very moving testimony” and saying there had been “a miscarriage of justice,” unanimously recommended last year that Mr. Macumber be freed.
But Mr. Macumber remains in prison, and Gov. Jan Brewer has refused to explain why.
