On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, we went Behind the Headlines to delve into the news that Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens granted a stay of execution for Marcellus Williams.

Joining the program first for the discussion was Erica Hunzinger, politics, education and criminal justice editor at St. Louis Public Radio, who wrote about the state’s intended use of pentobarbital to execute Williams. She also wrote about the stay of execution as well.

Host Don Marsh was then joined by Tricia Bushnell, the director of the Midwest Innocence Project, to discuss the work of the organization, which called for the stay of execution.
