The Republic reports Governor Jay Nixon is being "deluged" with letters from people who believe he should grant clemency to Patricia "Patty" Prewitt whom they believe was wrongly convicted of killing her husband twenty five years ago. Prewitt's husband, Bill, was shot and killed as he slept and she has claimed all along that someone broke into the house. She was eventually sentenced to life in prison. See story here.
