Death row inmate Troy Davis' plea rejected
The state of Ga. shot down the last-ditch clemency plea
SAVANNAH, Ga. — A last-ditch clemency plea from death row inmate Troy Davis has been rejected in the US state of Georgia.
Despite high-profile support from figures including the Pope and a former FBI director for the claim that he was wrongly convicted of killing a police officer in 1989, the Georgia's pardons board rejected his plea.
