A man in the United States is about to be executed, despite the fact new DNA evidence appears to prove his innocence.
New DNA testing conducted in December could prove the innocence of Marcellus Williams - who was convicted of fatally stabbing a former St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter during a 1998 robbery - and his attorneys are now seeking a new hearing or a commutation of his sentence to life in prison, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Williams is scheduled to be executed Tuesday evening, but lawyers for the death row inmate have appealed to the US Supreme Court.
"Based on the other, non-DNA evidence in this case, our office is confident in Marcellus Williams' guilt and plans to move forward", Loree Anee Paradise, deputy chief of staff for Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, told CNN in a statement.

"When you're stabbing, DNA transfers because of restriction and force". He also cited previous DNA testing of hairs found from Gayle's shirt and fingernails that also excluded Williams, and said footprints at the scene did not match Williams.
That other evidence includes items recovered from Gayle's home.

Evidence also seems to contradict the testimony of Laura Asaro, Williams' then-girlfriend.
"The prosecutor offered as a race "neutral" explanation for one of the strikes that the black juror looked like Mr. Williams and that the juror worked for the Post Office, even though the same prosecutor raised no objection to a white juror who worked for the Post Office", Spital said. "Whatever will be will be".
He was only 8 when his father was arrested for murder. "I wish they would find the right suspect and charge them to the fullest extent of the law".
