'Free Julius': Family and friends of Julius Jones make final pleas to stop Thursday execution in Oklahoma

Jones family pleas to stop executionIn the waning hours before Julius Jones' scheduled execution, his mother gave a heartfelt monologue proclaiming his innocence outside the doors of Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt's office on Wednesday.

It may have been her last chance to advocate for her son before he takes his final breath. Barring intervention from Stitt, Jones will be executed at 4 p.m. CST Thursday.

"If my child is executed tomorrow, or any day, it should be without a doubt, without any doubt," Madeline Davis-Jones said. "Sorry is not going to bring anybody back. Why be sorry? Be sure."

Her remarks were met with chants of "Free Julius" echoing throughout the building.

As of late Wednesday, Stitt had yet to say whether he would grant clemency, as recommended this month by a majority of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board.

Davis-Jones' comments came shortly after she saw her son for what might be the final time and on the same day as hundreds of students at schools across the Oklahoma City metro area walked out of class in support of Jones.

Jones was convicted of murder in the shooting death of Paul Howell during a 1999 carjacking in Edmond but has maintained his innocence. He is scheduled to die by lethal injection inside the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester.
