Radley Balko, who's been one of the foremost bloggers breaking and pressing the Cory Maye case, spent some time in Mississippi recently, investigating. Lots of interesting results all of which reinforces the fact that Maye should not be in jail, much less under a death sentence. Start with this jury interview and think about what level of attention and concern you'd want if someone were sitting in judgement on you for a capital crime.
Don't think it matters if you care? Cory Maye disagrees. [via comments, where Balko points out that liberal/left activists/arguments are not as likely to persuade Mississipian powerholders as much as rightist ones. Interesting.]
