Kenneth Foster: Sentence Commuted!!!

In a surprise move Texas Governor Rick Perry accepted a 6-1 Paroled Board recommendation to spare Kenneth Foster's life. In an equally surprising move, as part of his statement announcing the decision, the Governor called attention to the absurd practice of trying multiple defendants in capital murder cases at the same time in the same trial,

"I am concerned about Texas law that allowed capital murder defendants to be tried simultaneously and it is an issue I think the legislature should examine."
