Melissa Lucio Is Scheduled To Die In Seven Days

She will be executed by the state of Texas for something that she not only did not do, but for something that Did Not Happen. There was no murder of an innocent child. There was an accident and medical complications.

The Innocence Project is trying to stop this pointless, state-sanctioned murder. But we are dealing with Governor Abbott. It almost seems like they are determined to kill someone that they know does not deserve to die.

I am not a religious person. However, I know that there are many of sincere faith who hold a liberal perspective on the teachings in the Bible. Could those of you of such persuasion reach out to Abbott's office and argue a Christian perspective for setting aside this judgment against Ms. Lucio? I would consider calling the Governor's Office myself, but I don't live in Texas and I do not know if it would make any difference all all.

Thank you.

he would not intervene in an execution even if he KNEW they weren't guilty

4. According to this, she may get a stay of execution:

https://news.yahoo.com/melissa-lucio-execution-paused-da-120009527.html

Melissa Lucio, the Texas mother of 14 who was scheduled for execution on 27 April for what her lawyers argue was a wrongful conviction, is likely to get a stay of execution, Cameron County District Attorney Luis Saenz told a hearing Tuesday.

Ms Lucio, who has maintained her innocence on death row for more than 14 years, was sentenced to death in the murder trial of her 2-year-old daughter, Mariah, in February 2007.

The district attorney, who previously had stood by his decision to sentence Ms Lucio to death, has since walked back that statement, The Daily Beast reported.

Mr Saenz reportedly said he believed the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals would stop the execution, saying: “If defendant Lucio does not get a stay by a certain day, then I will do what I have to do and stop it.”

It is the district attorney’s prerogative to unilaterally withdraw the request for Ms Lucio’s execuction, The Daily Beast reported.
