Julius Jones – the man who Kim kardashian fought for – will have his life spared, but will remain behind bars.
Julius, whose case has gained national attention, will NOT be executed as scheduled today … instead, the Governor of Oklahoma. Kevin stitt commutes Jones’ death sentence to life without parole.
Stitt says he made the decision “after prayerful consideration and a review of the documents presented by all parties to this case.”
The governor’s decision is in line with the recommendation of the Parole Board, which said Julius should not be executed but rather serve a life sentence behind bars.
As you know … JJ was indicted and convicted of first degree murder in 2002, after prosecutors pinned him to the shooting death of a 45-year-old man. Paul Howell.
Julius has always maintained his innocence … and there has been a lot of evidence in the case linking him to the murder, as well as racist undertones.
Kim has been lobbying and defending Julius’ name for some time, most recently contacting the Jones family and shedding light on the status of his case.
Now Julius has his life spared.
Our sincere thanks to
