Seven out of nine witnesses of the Davis trial recanted or contradicted their testimony against Troy Davis. Texas inmate Michael Mortor was convicted on circumstantial evidence and sentenced to life in prison.

PTO Board member Molly LeGrand cheered students on and high-fived her daughter, Taylor, as she walked around the school.
