Albany -- The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles says it will weigh evidence that a convicted cop killer didn't get a fair trial.

38 year old Troy Davis was supposed to have been executed Tuesday, but Monday night, the Board granted a 90 day stay of execution.

Five witnesses testified at a clemency hearing Monday that they lied during Davis' trial for killing a Savannah police officer.   The Board has several options, but must make a decision in 90 days.

Pardons and Paroles Public Affairs Director Scheree Lipscomb said  "no, 90 days is it. That date is October 14th. At that point the execution may go forward. It may go forward before then, or they may commute it to clemency."

Prosecutors and the victim's widow and mother argue that Davis received a fair trial, and has had plenty of appeals, all of which have failed.
