Appeals Denied, Richard Glossip Execution Will Go Forward As Planned

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The execution of Richard Glossip will go forward as scheduled, Wed. Sept. 30, after the Court of Criminal Appeals denied requests for an evidentiary hearing and a rescheduling of the execution date.

The order came down Monday afternoon.

The appeals court granted an eleventh-hour emergency two week stay of execution just before noon on Sept. 16 after Glossip's attorneys fought to introduce new evidence that they say would exonerate their client. Glossip was scheduled to be executed at 3 p.m. that day.

Glossip's attorneys released a statement Monday afternoon. 

"This case splintered the Court of Criminal Appeals -- a 3-2 vote. Two Judges believed a further stay of execution and a hearing on innocence was required on the facts. We should all be deeply concerned about an execution under such circumstances," Glossip's attorney Don Knight said in a statement.

Glossip was convicted of masterminding a plan to have his boss, Barry Van Treese, beaten to death in 1997. The man responsible for the murder, Justin Sneed, told police Glossip put him up to the crime.

Glossip is scheduled to be executed on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
