We first reported Thursday about the growing push to halt the execution of a death row inmate in Texas.
That effort — gaining momentum as the U.S. Supreme Court may consider reviewing Rodney Reed’s case Friday.
Reed was sentenced to death more than two-decades ago for the 1996 rape and murder of Stacey Stites.
Nearly three-million people have signed a petition asking Texas Governor Greg Abbott to stop the execution.
Lawyers with the Innocence Project say they have proof that exonerates Reed and implicates Stites’ fiance, Jimmy Fennell, who was a police officer at the time.
