Efren Paredes says he is innocent of the first-degree murder and armed robbery that he was convicted of in 1989, when he was but 15-years old. So, he is seeking clemency from Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Paredes' parents also say he was home at the time of the slaying. On Thursday, the State's Parole Board will consider his request for a commutation of sentence. See story here.
