U.S. Supreme court denies Georgia death row inmate, Troy Davis, a new hearing

Troy Davis was convicted of the 1989 murder of Mark MacPhail, a Savannah, Georgia police officer. MacPhail was shot while trying to intervene in an altercation outside a convenience store. 

Davis was scheduled to die on September 23, but his execution was halted by a stay two hours before he was to be put to death.
