Before His Execution, Inmate Demands The Court Test Fingerprints - Here Are The Results

Even the best-laid plans can go awry at times, and that usually leads to a ton of internal reflection as to what went wrong. As the Times Free Press report, this inmate will have plenty of time to mull it over while he remains behind bars.

Marlon Kiser was sentenced to the death penalty back in 2003. He was found guilty for the murder of Hamilton County Deputy Donald Bond, but Kiser has contended that he’s innocent. Kiser’s pointing the blame at his former roommate, Mike Chattin, and he’s been sticking to the same story the whole time. In a last ditch effort to earn his freedom, Kiser thought he had come up with a foolproof plan.

He encouraged his attorney’s to look into previously untested fingerprints from the crime scene, and he thought that would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was framed. The court was petitioned to take a closer look, and Kiser got his wish. However, there was a slight problem with his plan. The untested fingerprints turned out to be Kiser’s. He remains behind bars.
