Manning granted reprieve

May 8, 2013

After transferring to a new holding cell, eating his presumed last meals and making final phone calls on Tuesday, Willie Jerome Manning, of Starkville, received a stay of execution from the Mississippi Supreme Court a mere four hours before his scheduled execution.

Manning, who was convicted for the 1992 murders of MSU students Tiffany Miller and Jon Steckler, had asked Gov. Bryant and the Mississippi Supreme Court to postpone the execution in order to conduct DNA tests on hair entered as evidence.
