Execution halted in US after DNA testing raised questions over inmate's guilt

Today 02:28 GMT

The governor of Missouri halted the scheduled execution of condemned inmate Marcellus Williams after DNA testing raised questions about whether he was guilty.

Williams’s attorney, Kent Gipson, who had asked Greitens for clemency, said the stay of execution was “the appropriate thing to do” and suggested large-scale opposition to the execution was a factor in the governor’s decision.
