Republican Oklahoma lawmakers seek hearing in death row case
August 7, 2022
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — More than 60 Oklahoma lawmakers, including many Republicans who support the death penalty, urged the state attorney general to join their request for a new evidentiary hearing in the case of death row inmate Richard Glossip.
The group of 61 state legislators sent a letter last week to Attorney General John O'Connor that pointed to an independent investigation by a Texas law firm that raised questions about Glossip's guilt. Details of the report came out a couple of weeks before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals set a Sept. 22 execution date for Glossip.
