On Monday, the state parole board issued a 90-day stay of execution for Troy Anthony Davis. Davis was sentenced to death in 1991 for the murder of off-duty police officer Mark Allen MacPhail in Savannah. Since his trial, seven of nine witnesses whose testimony helped convict Davis have recanted. The 90-day delay followed a week of public demonstrations in support of Davis, including last Thursday afternoon’s rally in Little Five Points led by Amnesty International and Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.
