There was some evidence the atty to say cleread Charles Raby because the DNA under the fingernails of the victim was from someone else but that doesn't meant that Raby couldn't have still been involved.
Texas is so death happy that there isn't a ghost's chance in hell that they'll overturn this. LOL
But why isn't there a thread for him and what's his execution date?
Of coarse the DNA evidence would not totally exclude the possibility of Mr Raby participating in the crime. It would however raise doubts of his role as the murderer ,obviously if the DNA is not a match to Mr Raby we know there is another suspect somewhere out here and quite possibly we have an innocent man incarcerated......there would be enough doubt raised in the minds of reasonable jurists to merit further examination.
The reason there is no thread for his execution is that to the best of my knowledge the Courts of Texas have to date NOT set a date for his execution. Based on the DNA findings I would seriously doubt any date will be set for Mr Raby in the forseeable future' ( THIS ALSO IS THE REASON I MOVED YOUR POST TO THIS AREA)
Eta; I will research the case of Mr Raby later tonite and get some details posted up. Quite obvious with over 3000 inmates on death row I do not have the time to do threads on each one , I need time to do useful things like drink beer LOL. Generally I leave it to the members to start threads on particular inmates who intrest them that do not have scheduled dates of execution.
Charles Raby was tried and convicted for the Oct 15 1992 murder and attempted rape of 72 year old Edna Mae Franklin. The prosecution alleged that Raby broke int Ms Franklins home , stripped her of her undergarments , attempted to rape her , then stabbed her 15 times before slitting her throat. Raby then ransacked the home and fled , he was arrested a few days later.
Though frail in structure , the evidence indicated that Ms Franklin put up a fierce struggle with her attacker. Franklin's live-in grandsons suggested two possible suspects--Raby, who'd smashed a beer bottle on the ground after a recent argument with Franklin, and another local man. At the time of his arrest Mr Raby gave a signed confession to police in which he admitted to attacking Ms Franklin and general circumstances surrounding the crime . The statement reads in part "I went to a little store and bought some wine . . . . I drank the wine . . . . I knocked on the door. I did not hear anyone answer. I just went inside . . . . I walked into the kitchen and grabbed Edna. Edna’s back was to me and I just grabbed her. I remember struggling with her and I was on top of her. I know I had my knife but I do not remember taking it out. We were in the living room when we went to the floor. I saw Edna covered in blood and underneath her. I went to the back of the house and went out the back door . . . ." Raby currently contends that he is illiterate and had no clue what the statment he signed said.
The State also introduced an eyewitness who testified they had seen Raby leaving the crime scene alone the night of the murder.
Mr Raby currently awaits a Court ruling on recent DNA test results introduced by his attorney that alledgedly do not point to Mr Raby or the grandsons of Ms Franklin as the killer. No date of execution has been set..

seriously: Regarding your comment that Charles Ng comes from a "wealthy family", a "GOOD FAMILY"; since when does being wealthy equate to good? They are two entirely different things; and, frankly, some of the worst criminals are in fact wealthy. Con't in next post.

seriously: Consider the Clinton's: Bill has oral "isn't sex" in the White House, now virtually every kinder. knows what oral sex is. Then there's Hillary first deriding the women who came forward about her husband; then she deleting files to hide her activities.
Sept 1, 2019 20:19:48 GMT -5
seriously: Oh, and let's not forget Bill Clinton "didn't inhale" when he smoked pot...yeah, right! At a time when America's young men are being drafted for the Vietnam war, Bill & Hillary choose to take a trip to Russia and conveniently miss the draft all together.
Sept 1, 2019 20:22:46 GMT -5
seriously: Remember Hillary is for women & children; yet she only had one child and she doesn't even bake cookies...oh my! She defames her opponents with accusations of womanizing hoping we forget about her husband IN THE OVAL OFFICE! Not happening honey!

seriously: Then there's the BIG BANK BAIL-OUT; the banker's show up in Washington D.C. to get WELFARE (OUR tax dollars) by flying there in a LEAR JET...really! Even Obama was shocked at that move! But they're GOOD because they're WEALTHY? I think not!
Sept 1, 2019 20:33:22 GMT -5
seriously: I think Obama should have made them liquidate all their assets both business AND PERSONAL so they could climb over their own pile of s***; instead of expecting the American tax payers to do it.

seriously: Wake up people! Don't you realize that WE THE PEOPLE don't need the rich, THEY NEED US...to do the work that makes them richer so they don't have to clean their own toilets; and all we get is industrialized meats and crops, GMO's, antibiotic resistance.
Sept 1, 2019 20:38:53 GMT -5
seriously: Patented seed crops, running small farmer's out of business, toxic waste, poisoned water, dirty air, deforestation, global warming. By the way, who even wants to live in a GLOBAL GOVERNMENT world with a GLOBAL ECONOMY?

seriously: America should be more like Switzerland, fix our own 'broken wagon' and let the rest of the world fix theirs...it's not an U.S.A. problem. Screw oil, it pollutes the earth...GO SOLAR, WIND, WATER POWER! Screw the utility companies!
Sept 1, 2019 20:48:33 GMT -5
seriously: That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. Best way to topple the rich...eliminate money and go back to the barter system; let the rich wipe their own bums and clean their own toilets...for a change! No more "Groom of the stool" for them.

seriously: Then banks and wall street can crash all they want; why should we be dragged down with them.
