Update and Press Coverage of Troy Davis Case

AP has picked up the story of Troy Davis, the Georgia man on death row for a murder he maintains he did not commit. His lawyers filed a motion last week seeking a new trial, based on sworn affidavits by witnesses from the 1991 trial who now say they lied due to police coercion when they testified against Mr. Davis. The motion was denied, and defense lawyer Jason Ewart planned to appeal that ruling Friday night. A clemency hearing is set for Monday morning, before the GA Board of Pardons and Paroles.
