Death Row Inmate Files Petition for Clemency

With two and a half weeks until his execution, a petition for clemency has been filed by Ralph Baze after the death row inmate says prosecutors mishandled the case.

Baze was convicted of murdering a sheriff and his deputy in eastern Kentucky on Jan. 20, 1992.

He is scheduled to receive a lethal injection on Sept. 25.

Now after filing a petition against prosecutors, Governor Fletcher's legal adviser is looking into the matter.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Greg Stumbo says he's appalled at Baze's accusations that lawyers from his office somehow lied in this case.

If the execution takes place, it will be the first in Kentucky in eight years.
