Richard Glossip's Attorneys Make Another Plea For Stay Of Execution

MCALESTER, Okla. (KFOR) – An Oklahoma inmate's attorneys are making another plea during the 11th hour for a stay of execution.

Richard Glossip is set to die on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 3 p.m.

Glossip is convicted of murder for the 1997 death of motel owner Barry Van Treese, though Glossip wasn't the actual killer.

The man who bludgeoned Van Treese to death, Justin Sneed, testified that Glossip hired him for the murder.

Glossip has been on death row since 1998.

His execution has been stayed three times and he still maintains his innocence.

On Monday, the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals denied Glossip's request for a stay of execution.

Tuesday, Glossip's attorneys filed a petition to the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals, asking them to reconsider their decision to deny a hearing for new evidence.

Glossip's attorneys are also appealing to the Supreme Court.
