The US Supreme Court overturned the execution of a man who was convicted of a triple murder.
The reason for this decision was an appeal asking for a new DNA analysis.
Back in 1995, in Texas, Henry Skinner was convicted for the murder of his girlfriend and her two sons. However, the man did not admit his guilt.
Now 47-year-old Skinner is married to Sandrine Ajorge, a French activist who supports the abolition of the death penalty.
He asked the court to give him the opportunity to undergo a new DNA test, which, in his opinion, would prove his innocence.
Skinner learned about the decision of the US Supreme Court on death row, where he sat awaiting execution.
However, the decision to postpone the execution does not guarantee a DNA analysis.
Now the execution of the sentence has been postponed until a decision is taken to re-examine the case of Henry Skinner.And if the judges decide not to re-examine the case, the current sentence against Skinner will be carried out.
