Troy Davis Execution Stay Remains

ATLANTA (AP) The stay of execution for Georgia inmate Troy Davis remains in effect as his fate awaits a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Davis' appeal is not listed on the docket for oral arguments this week.

The most likely date for his case to arise is in a conference by the Supreme Court justices scheduled for Friday.

Davis, who was convicted of the 1989 murder of Savannah police Officer Mark McPhail, wants a judge to grant him a new hearing based on witnesses recanting testimony they gave against him during
his trial.

The Supreme Court issued the stay Sept. 23 just before Davis was to be put to death.

There were expectations that the court would render a decision in the case on Monday, but there was none.
