Supreme Court Grants Indefinite Stay of Execution to Oklahoma Prisoner Richard Glossip

HeadlineMay 08, 2023

The Supreme Court on Friday granted an indefinite stay of execution for Oklahoma prisoner Richard Glossip, who had been scheduled to be put to death May 18. This comes after Oklahoma’s attorney general and Glossip’s defense team filed a joint motion to halt the execution. Glossip has maintained his innocence in the 1997 murder-for-hire for the past quarter-century. Later in the show, we’ll talk to his spiritual adviser, anti-death penalty activist Sister Helen Prejean.
