Colorado: Pardon for Dead Recipient

It is reported that Governor Ritter on granted a "full and unconditional pardon" to 23-year old Joe Arridy. Well, actually Arridy was 23 in 1939, when he was executed for the murder of a 15-year old. According to this report, Arridy had a 45 IQ, but gave a Wyoming sheriff "a full and detailed account of the murder." He was also "tried twice," and found guilty "although he probably was not even in Pueblo at the time."
