Troy Davis awaits U.S. Supreme Court decision

On Oct. 10, the U.S. Supreme Court met to decide whether to hear the appeal of Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis, whose innocence claims have generated international attention.

No word yet on whether the high court will take the case. If it does, Davis' execution — which was delayed twice in the past year, both times within 24 hours of his scheduled death — will be put on hold.

If it doesn't, a new execution date will be set. And Davis likely will have exhausted every possible appeal.
