The man accused of shooting a pastor and his assistant in Lakeland, Florida is now in jail.  Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says Jeremiah Fogel murdered his wife Theresa at their home, then went to the Greater Faith Christian Church where he shot Pastor William Boss and associate pastor Carl Stewart while both men were kneeling in prayer.  Two members of the congregation were able to tackle Fogel and hold him until police arrived.  Pastors Boss and Stewart were last listed in critical but stable condition with gunshot wounds to the head.  Fogel faces charges of murder and attempted murder.

Convicted Georgia cop killer Troy Davis’ best hope for avoiding execution on Wednesday goes before the Georgia Pardons an Paroles board today.  Davis was sentenced to death 20 years ago for the murder of Savannah Police Officer Mark MacPhail.  Since then, the case has gained worldwide attention with dignitaries including former President Jimmy Carter and Pope Benedict the Sixteenth saying Davis should be granted clemency.  Since Davis’ conviction in 1991, seven of nine witnesses have either recanted or contradicted their testimony.
