Till I Turn to Dust

Willie Manning’s second conviction (the 1993 murder of two elderly African American ladies, Emmoline Jimmerson and Alberta Jordan) has been very much overshadowed by his recent narrow escape from execution for his first conviction (the 1992 murder of two white … Continue reading

Remember Edwin Hart Turner

For Willie Manning time must be passing slowly: every day has come and gone without a new Order from the Mississippi Supreme Court. He knows only too well that the stay of execution that he has been granted is precarious. … Continue reading

No Matter How Big the Lie

As he has done before, Willie Manning is awaiting the court’s decision about whether to allow DNA testing. He must be aware that his life still hangs in the balance; but he probably knows also that his story has now … Continue reading

Through his attorney, Willie extends his thanks to everyone who has supported him. Death Row is a lonely and challenging place, where messages of support can mean the difference between keeping going and giving up. It has helped Willie enormously … Continue reading

He Will See Tomorrow!

The Mississippi State Court has today found that “the Motion to Stay Execution should be granted until further Order of this Court”. While his supporters around the world are celebrating, Willie will go back to his regular cell and regular routine. … Continue reading
