Terry Lyn Short was sentenced to death for killing a 22-year old Japanese student in Oklahoma City in 1995 and he is scheduled to die by lethal injection on June 17th. But first, the State's five-member Pardon and Parole Board will hear from Short via video link from death row. The Board will also hear presentations from Short's attorneys, the attorney general's office and anyone representing the victim. It will then decide whether to recommend clemency to Gov. Brad Henry (D). See story here.
