Gerald Marshall was convicted of murder and sentenced to death after the manager of a restaurant persuaded him to take part in a staged fake robbery to defraud the business that went disastrously wrong.
Ronald “Bo” Worthy entered the restaurant, and shot employee Christopher Dean who had placed the money in a safe and was unable to open it.
Worthy and another co-defendant then conspired to place the blame on Gerald, whose involvement in the conspiracy was minimal.
While Gerald was involved in the conspiracy, his trial was unfair and the jury were given a false picture. His sentence is grossly unjust.
