Exclusive Death Row Interview

Posted: Updated:

PAMPA, TEXAS - A convicted killer from Pampa is exactly one month away from death after 16 years behind bars.

Henry "Hank" Skinner was supposed to be killed just a few minutes ago - but a stay of execution is giving him another month to fight his fate.

He is convicted of beating his girlfriend to death with an axe handle and repeated stabbing her two sons until they died.

Skinner says he is innocent, and new DNA could help set him free. Prosecutors say the "new" DNA evidence testing has already been shot down in previous appeals.
