Troy Davis was officially pronounced dead at 11:08 pm EST in the State of Georgia. Earlier this evening, Davis’ execution was delayed due to a request for a stay, but was denied by the Supreme Court hours later.
Troy Davis was convicted of murdering an off-duty police officer in 1989, but witnesses have recanted their testimonies over the years. Recently, thousands across the nation protested and petitioned to prevent today’s execution.
