Kim Kardashian has released a statement on Twitter, calling on the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board to grant clemency for Death Row inmate Richard Glossip.

Glossip will go before the Pardon and Parole Board on Wednesday to ask for clemency, with the state arguing in favor of clemency.

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals recently denied a request to stay Glossip's execution and grant him a new trial. That request was supported by Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond.

If the Pardon and Parole Board grants clemency, the case will then be in the hands of Gov. Kevin Stitt.

Glossip's execution date is currently scheduled for May 18th.

Kardashian released the following statement in a tweet:

Barry Van Treese was beaten to death in an Oklahoma City motel room in 1997. Prosecutors said Richard Glossip paid a co-worker, Justin Sneed, to kill Van Treese, who was Glossip's boss. Sneed confessed to the murder, and as part of his plea agreement to avoid the death penalty, Sneed testified against Glossip.

Glossip was convicted of first-degree murder in 1998 and has been on death row since, while Sneed received a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
