Texas stays Rodney Reeds’ execution

Death row inmate Rodney Reed (l.), scheduled to be executed on March 5, 2015, and Jimmy Lewis Fennell. Fennell is the former fiance of Stacey Stites, who Reed was convicted of murdering. Fennell was later convicted of rape and kidnapping of a 20-year-old Williamson Co. woman.

“We have filed three affidavits by three well-credentialed forensic pathologists … all of whom who have concluded that the state’s theory of the crime is medically and scientifically impossible,” Andrew MacRae, one of Reed’s attorneys, said at a news conference in Austin, where they expect the case to eventually land.

The state’s theory of the crime, MacRae said, was that Stites was abducted, raped and murdered early in the morning of April 23. But the affidavits put the time of death the night before, on April 22.
