Troy Davis was scheduled to be executed on Tuesday until the U.S. Supreme Court granted him a last-minute stay of execution.

Davis was convicted of killing an off-duty police officer in Savannah, Ga., in 1989. Yet, seven of the nine eyewitnesses have recanted their testimony, and now serious questions linger about Davis' guilt.

For more on the case, Farai Chideya talks with NPR's Kathy Lohr and Amnesty International Regional Director Jared Feuer.
