Julius Jones execution update – Family hand delivers petition letter to Oklahoma governor as Kim Kardashian issues plea
JULIUS Jones' family has hand-delivered a letter calling for a stay in his execution to the Oklahoma governor.
It comes as Kim Kardashian made a passionate plea against his death penalty, which is currently scheduled for Thursday.
Madeline Davis-Jones — the mom of the 40-year-old prisoner who was sentenced to death in 2002 —urged Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt on Sunday to call off her son's execution.
Jones was a 19-year-old student at the University of Oklahoma when he was considered the prime suspect in the killing of 45-year-old businessman Paul Howell.
In 2002, he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death at just 22 years old. He has spent decades proclaiming his innocence.
On October 27, 2021, Jones was granted a stay of execution.
But on October 28, after Supreme Court review, it was announced that a request to vacate the stays of execution for Jones was granted.
