Petitioning Governor Eric Greitens and 1 other


What you should know:
Marcellus Williams is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. He was convicted of the August 11, 1998, robbery and murder of 42-year-old Felicia Gayle in her St. Louis home.

Is Missouri Executing an Innocent Man?
There is no physical evidence linking him to the crime - none of the DNA evidence matches Marcellus. Marcellus was convicted based on the testimony of two individuals with troubling pasts and who received monetary compensation. Marcellus’ case needs the governor's intervention to save his life.

Beyond the question of guilt, Missouri’s death penalty is broken for many reasons, including but not limited to racial injustice, disparities in representation and sentencing, prosecutorial misconduct, public opinion. These issues are all present in Marcellus Williams’ case.
