section of the country a year ago,
will be executed at the state prison
early in the coming week unless his
sentence is commuted, by Governor
West Webb has had two trials and
an appeal for a third trial was denied
by the supreme court. Governor
West, after a careful review of the
case, announced that he saw nothing
that would ' warrant his Interference
