Pending Case: Perry Williams, Texas, 07/14/16

STAYED

Perry Williams was sentenced to death on June 25, 2002 for the September 17, 2000 murder of Matthew Carter.

Mr. Williams was 19 at the time of the crime.

On July 6, a Texas state district court judge withdrew Mr. Williams' execution order because the state failed to meet the deadline to provide test results on the purity of the lethal injection drugs that were going to be used to put Mr. Williams to death.  This is the first time that an execution in Texas has been delayed for this reason.
