WM3 supporters laud ruling

Posted By on Thu, Nov 4, 2010 at 3:18 PM

At a press conference held this afternoon, Lorri Davis, wife of Damien Echols, along with Capi Peck, Brent Peterson and John Hardin of Arkansas Take Action, held a press conference to laud the state Supreme Court’s decision to order new circuit court evidentiary hearings for Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, three men now known as the West Memphis Three.

Davis said she spoke with Echols earlier and told him, “This is the beginning.” She said Echols then replied, “No, honey, it’s the end.”

“This is huge for Arkansas,” Peck said. “We’ve finally done the right thing.” Hardin says the group will be meeting soon to talk about efforts to raise public awareness of the case as the new hearings approach.
