Texas execution case on CourtTV today


Watch CourtTV’s Best Defense today at 11 a.m. ET to learn more about the case of Claude Jones, who was executed in 2000 in Texas for a murder he always said he didn’t commit. On Friday, the Innocence Project joined with the Texas Observer, Innocence Project of Texas and Texas Innocence Network in filing papers requesting evidence from Jones’s case be preserved and tested for DNA. Yesterday, a Texas judge ordered that the evidence be preserved and set an October 3 hearing on whether DNA testing can proceed on a hair from the crime scene that could prove Jones’s innocence.
