Judge Orders Hearing for Philadelphia Man Sentenced to Execution in October


Terrance Williams is sentenced to be executed on October 3rd. When he was just 18, Williams killed Amos Norwood with a tire iron. He was convicted and sentenced to die. But, a judge has ordered a hearing for Williams because his co-defendant told detectives that Williams had been sexually abused by Norwood. The abuse supposedly started when Williams was 13. The co-defendant and the prosecutor who tried Williams’ case will testify in a hearing next Thursday. [Newsworks]
