    Follow Up on the Execution of Jeff Wood

    On August 17, 2016 I posted this message concerning the pending execution of Jeff Wood.

    On August 19, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted Wood a stay of execution.

    Here is an excerpt from this CNN report:

    On his 43rd birthday, Wood received news that the execution was halted.

    The two-page order sent two arguments from the defense to the trial court for resolution.

    One of the claims argued "false and misleading testimony" was presented by the prosecuting side's psychiatrist and it was in violation of due process. The other claimed the judgment also violates due process because it was based on false scientific evidence through "false psychiatric testimony concerning (Wood's) future dangerousness."

    And here is a reaction from Baptist News Global.

    I will continue to pray for Jeff Wood and the Texas justice system. May we do what is right, and be found a merciful people.
