WYTV ABC 33 reports convicted killer Jason Getsy had a clemency hearing today. The petition for mercy emphasized his "rough upbringing," the absence of his "real father" and the influence of drugs and guns. It is also argued that Getsy felt "threatened" by the person that paid him and two others to commit the murder. His attorney says the death penalty is inappropriate for a "puppet." The request is opposed by a County Prosecutor. See story here.
