Rodney Reed 'deserves a chance to clear his name,' victim Stacey Stites' cousin says

New witness statements and forensic evidence uncovered since Stites' death in 1996 should allow Reed a new trial, supporters say.

Greg Abbott would consider halting the execution, even as a bipartisan group of 40 state lawmakers have sent letters to him and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles saying discrepancies and unanswered questions in the case underscore a need for its reexamination. .........
