A team of defense lawyers for convicted killer Stanley Williams is busy with a last-ditch federal appeal to call off his execution.
The California Supreme Court has already refused to grant a stay
of execution. Williams is scheduled to die a minute after midnight
tonight by injection at San Quentin State Prison.
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has yet to decide
whether to grant clemency for the 1979 murders.
Williams co-founded the Crips gang. He was condemned to death
for the murder of a man during a robbery in February 1979 and the
slayings of a couple and their daughter at a South Los Angeles
motel the following month.
