It seems very rare that there is good news to report, so it's nice to be able to post this. Kenneth Foster was due to be killed simply for being the driver when Michael LaHood was murdered, despite having no idea that the murder was going to take place.
The Governor of Texas today spared his life.
"Today is a good day," family members told loved ones over the phone. "He's off death row."
From outside the state prison in Huntsville, his family reached out to other relatives and friends around the country. "I'm happy, I can call Nydesha , I can call his daughter and tell her they're not going to kill daddy tonight," said Tasha Foster, Kenneth's wife. "He's going to a different prison, you can finally hug your daddy, because she ain't never hugged her daddy."
