Time, money, gift items -- local organizations weigh in on what they really need, now and through the rest of the year.
The execution of Ivan Teleguz is scheduled for April 25, but a growing number of people –both in Virginia and nationwide– are asking Governor Terry McAuliffe to grant him clemency. More than ten years ago, a jury convicted Teleguz of hiring someone to kill his ex-girlfriend, but in the years since, witnesses who testified against him have recanted their testimonies. If Teleguz is executed, Virginia will have carried out the second most executions of any state since 1976. Kojo explores the case and the value of capital punishment in Virginia’s criminal justice system.
