Another day in court for Death Row's Tim Howard

The 1998 capital case against Tim Howard from Little River County has long drawn our attention in reporting by Mara Leveritt, most recently in her account of huge problems with DNA tests conducted for the case (and covered up by the state).

March 29, Howard's attorneys will ask the Arkansas Supreme Court — previously deeply divided on the question of whether the case against Howard had been made — for a new trial in the racially tinged case.

Howard's case is drawing wider attention. The video is a project of Philander Smith College's social justice initiative (we will miss President Walter Kimbrough, heading to Dillard University in New Orleans, who gave rise to the initiative.) And also, a petition drive has begun for Howard. The link will take you to others about the case.
