This morning, the five-member state Pardon and Parole Board voted unanimously to deny clemency for death row inmate Terry Lyn Short. Short's scheduled execution is June 17th. In 1995, he threw a homemade firebomb into the apartment of his ex-girlfriend and killed another tenant (a Japanese exchange student) in the process. Short told the Board (by video hookup from the penitentiary) that he did not know the man that he killed and did not intend to kill him. See story here.
