Stop the Sept. 24 Execution of Marcellus Williams, an Innocent Man

Marcellus Williams is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 24, for a crime he did not commit. 

DNA evidence proves Marcellus Williams is innocent.

Marcellus Williams is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 24 for a crime DNA proves he did not commit. The St. Louis County prosecuting attorney reviewed these DNA results and filed a motion to vacate Mr. Williams’ conviction because he believed the DNA results proved by clear and convincing evidence that Mr. Williams did not commit this crime. Although the circuit court has not yet scheduled a hearing to address this motion — and no court has ever considered the new exculpatory evidence — the Missouri Supreme Court set an execution date for Mr. Williams.

We have less than 100 days to stop the execution of an innocent person. Add your name to stop this injustice before it’s too late. 

This petition is in collaboration with the Midwest Innocence Project and Missourians to Abolish the Death Penalty.
