S14 Ep34: Marcellus Williams Execution Scheduled

6/16/2024
In 2017 Marcellus Williams avoided being executed for a crime he did not commit by just 4 hours. Bob covered his case at the time, and engaged the Truth & Justice Army in the fight to free this innocent man. Since then, a new Governor has taken charge in Missouri and he has since lifted the former Governor's stay on the execution and dissolved the board of inquiry that had been investigating the case. This week the Missouri Supreme Court set an execution date for Williams, and the Innocence Project has asked for our help to save Marcellus Williams' life.
