The State parole board will meet on July 9 to consider the clemency application of 33-year old Jason Getsy who is scheduled for execution by lethal injection in August. Getsy has been on "death row" for some 13 years now. He was convicted for the murder of a 68-year old woman and the attempted murder of her son in exchange for $5,000. A witness later said that he "bragged" about the shooting and “grabbed a piece of pizza with no cheese on it and said, ‘This looks just like this bitch’s face after we shot her.” See story here.
