The wait continues for Charles Raby, the Houston man sentenced to lethal injection for brutally murdering a 72-year-old grandmother in 1994.
Raby and his lawyer Sarah Frazier have been fighting for years to introduce new DNA testing to the case. The results, which Frazier says exonerate Raby, finally made their way into court today. But they weren't enough to woo the judge into a snap decision.
A ruling should come on February 27.
The somewhat glum news probably won't faze Raby. After almost 15 years on death row, Frazier says, he's become "sort of fatalistic".
