Michelle Byrom news: Mississippi Supreme Court denies motion to set execution date

The Mississippi Supreme Court this afternoon denied the state’s motion to set an execution date but took no further action.

The order, that the state’s motion to set an execution was “not well taken and should be denied”, was unanimous, joined by all justices, and was signed by Justice Coleman.  Here it is.

Still pending before the court is a motion by Byrom’s lawyers to file a second postconviction review proceeding, raising issues of actual innocence. I intend to blog about the content about that proposed petition, after I blog about the opinions about lawyer ineffectiveness.
