Willingham's Wife Says He Admitted Killings

Addressing the now-infamous Texas execution of a man many now claim was innocent, Kent Scheidegger at Crime and Consequences excerpts the statement of Willingham's wife, published in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, in which she claims, inter alia, that Willingham admitted his guilt to her. Says Kent:

One thing is certain. Those who contend Willingham was certainly innocent are full of baloney.  This is looking more and more like a rerun of the Coleman case. A major news magazine convinced large numbers of people the executed man was innocent. His supporters asserted his innocence as a proven fact. When all the facts were in, he was clearly guilty.
