Skinner Audio Tapes

Posted: Updated:

PAMPA, TEXAS - There's a clearer picture about just what happened in the Supreme Court hearing of a convicted triple murderer from Pampa.

Although cameras weren't allowed in the courtroom, NewsChannel 10 already gave you the high lights from the written transcript. Today you can hear what happened for yourself as the audio recordings are now available for download - just click under the associated links to find the tapes.

Skinner is sentenced to death in the 1994 killings of his girlfriend and her two sons. The Supreme Court issued a stay of execution just as he had already finished most of his last meal in March of 2010. Skinner is asking the Supreme Court to allow a federal civil rights law suit to ask the courts for additional DNA evidence testing.

A decision from the nation's top court is not expected until Spring.
