Less than 2 hours before Troy was to die by lethal injection, the U.S. Supreme Court , the highest court in the United States, granted a stay of execution. They will be reviewing the petitions and will make their ruling early next week.
The Troy David Film blog, at http://www.troydavisfilm.blogspot.com/ reports that producer Terry Benedict spent the day with Troy as he prepared to die. Troy remained in good spirits. Unfortunately, cameras are not permitted on death row, “but I can imagine what they would have recorded when Troy learned the news that his life was spared for another week.”
