"Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has commuted the death sentence of Julius Jones, after mounting public pressure and just hours before he was set to be executed.
Stitt reduced Jones’ sentence to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, intervening before his scheduled lethal injection but falling short of the state parole board’s recommendation.
"After prayerful consideration and reviewing materials presented by all sides of this case, I have determined to commute Julius Jones’ sentence to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole," Stitt announced."
