Family members of Oklahoma death row inmate Timothy Stemple are appealing to Governor Fallin to delay his March 15th execution date. Stemple's sister and other relatives who held a news conference in Tulsa yesterday want a forensic animation specialist to present evidence conflicting with the state's account used to convict the now 46-year-old. Stemple's then 30-year-old wife Trisha was run over and beaten to death in 1996.
