According to the commissioner of the state Department of Corrections, death row inmate Troy Davis is scheduled for execution on Monday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m.

Davis, whose execution has twice been halted at the last minute — most recently by the U.S. Supreme Court — appears to have exhausted his appeals. Yet evidence unearthed in the case, including the recantations of seven of nine trial witnesses, suggests that he might not have killed Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail.
