Kenneth Foster: Final Day

The Texas Board of Pardons was supposed to announce its decision regarding Kenneth Foster yesterday. Now, the Boards is planning to announce its decision whether or not Foster will be put to death today, his scheduled execution date. If the board does not grant a pardon the governor of Texas has the power to grant a 30 day stay. If the board does grant a pardon, by a 5 out of 7 vote. the governor has to approve the pardon. It's unclear at what time the decision will be announced but the recent executions in Texas have been scheduled for 5pm although they have actually been occurring at different times in the evenings.
