The U.S. Supreme court still has not announced its decision whether to hear or deny Troy Davis’ appeal for a new trial. Davis is on death row for the 1989 murder of Savannah Police Officer Mark Macphail. Reaction was mixed nine days ago when the high court issued a stay of execution.

Family members on both sides share thoughts as they wait for word.

“We wait very patiently that the courts in Georgia have upheld the law and have done everything right by Troy and that they won’t find anything wrong with the case itself and so they’ll just say okay we can go go back and set an execution date. ” says MacPhail’s Widow Joan.

“He has a strong family base. One thing about Troy is that he is very prayerful hopeful and he’s standing on faith that something positive will happen from this, Troy’s sister Matina Correia.

Troy Davis will turn 40 next Thursday. An answer from the U.S. Supreme Court on whether to take up Troy Davis’ case could come any day now.
