Stop the Execution of Wade Greely Lay in Oklahoma

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt & the Pardon and Parole Board

Wade Greely Lay is scheduled for execution in Oklahoma on January 6, 2022 for the 2004 murder of Kenny Anderson.

In scheduling executions such as this, Oklahoma makes itself an outlier in its use of the death penalty. The majority of other states are on a downward trend of executions, and increasingly, states are abolishing the practice altogether, including the southern state of Virginia, which repealed its death penalty law earlier this year.

Furthermore, the continued failure of Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol and the resulting "botched" executions are of grave concern.

Please sign this petition asking the Governor and the Pardon and Parole Board to make sure Lay does not face execution and to seek a path to clemency in the case.

We are writing to you regarding Wade Greely Lay, who is scheduled for execution in Oklahoma on January 6, 2022 for the 2004 murder of Kenny Anderson.​​

In scheduling executions such as this, Oklahoma makes itself an outlier in its use of the death penalty. The majority of other states are on a downward trend of executions, and increasingly, states are abolishing the practice altogether, including the southern state of Virginia, which repealed its death penalty law earlier this year.

Furthermore, the continued failure of Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol and the resulting "botched" executions are of grave concern.

We, the undersigned, ask that you do everything within your power to ensure Lay does not face execution and to seek a path to clemency in the case.

Thank you for time and attention to this urgent and serious matter.
