Musgrove To Announce Clemency Decision Today

Gov. Ronnie Musgrove will announce today his decision on a death row inmate's appeals for clemency.

Tracy Alan Hansen is scheduled to die by lethal injection Wednesday at the state Penitentiary at Parchman. Hansen was sentenced to death for the 1987 death of state Trooper Bruce Ladner.

Musgrove could pardon Hansen, commute his death sentence to life in prison without parole, grant clemency or stay the execution.
