Attorneys for condemned Missouri man seek halt to execution

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. Listening to what experts have to say about new evidence is particularly important in a case like this with scientific evidence.
"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.

The Missouri Supreme Court on August 15 turned down defense lawyers' bid to have the execution stopped and didn't provide a reason, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It would be second execution carried out under Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
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".
