SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Georgia death row inmate Troy Anthony Davis' relatives, as well as family of the Savannah police officer he was convicted of killing, have vigils planned for Tuesday around Savannah before the case returns to federal court.
Supporters of Davis have scheduled a church vigil for Tuesday evening, the night before a federal judge hears evidence that Davis' attorneys say shows he's innocent of the 1989 slaying of police officer Mark MacPhail.
MacPhail's family also planned a gathering Tuesday near Savannah's police headquarters.
Other groups also have local vigils planned.
NAACP leaders are hosting an Hour of Prayer for 12 p.m. Tuesday. Call 712.432.1000. Use access code 481005918#.
National leaders of Amnesty International, NAACP's Larry Cox, Benjamin Todd Jealous, Martina Correia (Davis's sister) and others will be at a community mass at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at New Life Apostolic Temple at 2120 W. Bay St. in Savannah.
The Wright Square Vigil for Restorative Justice is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. There will be: prayer and meditation, opportunity for artistic expression, opportunity to to learn about restorative justice, information about human rights and stories from former death row inmates who were innocent and exonerated, according to a news release.
The U.S. Supreme Court last summer ordered a hearing on Davis' innocence claim. Davis was sentenced to die in 1991 for shooting MacPhail to death as the off-duty officer rushed to the aid of a homeless man who was being attacked.
