Death row inmate of 25 years could dodge execution for fourth time

The Attorney General of Oklahoma has filed a request to stop the execution for death row inmate Richard Glossip.

Gentner Drummond made an unusual statement. He said that he did not believe Glossip was innocent but he found the trial “unfair and unreliable”.

Glossip will have narrowly escaped death four times if the Supreme Court grants an execution stay, which pauses all legal proceedings.

He will be executed by lethal injection on 18 May. This is for the order to kill Barry Van Treese in 1997, owner of the motel where Glossip was employed.


Justin Sneed admitted to robbing Van Treese of his money and killing him with a bat. But he claimed that he only did it after Glossip offered him $10,000 (PS8,000).

Glossip always claimed his innocence.

Mr Dummond supports Glossip in his efforts to have his conviction overturned, and for a new trial to be ordered.

He claimed last month that Sneed lied to the jury regarding Glossip’s mental health and drug usage.

The Supreme Court’s motion comes after a week of the state parole board rejecting his mercy request.

Glossip’s executed were halted in the past. Glossip’s execution in 2015 was stopped when officials realized they received the wrong lethal medication.

Following the mishap, Oklahoma halted executions for nearly seven years.

In 2019, three and a half hours before his execution, was granted a stay.

Glossip , a paralegal and anti-death sentence advocate, married Lea Rodger in 2022 after escaping his third execution.

Most stays of execution are around 30 days long.
