New witness in Rodney Reed case claims victim's fiance confessed to murder while in prison

Attorneys with the Innocence Project say they have proof convicted death row inmate Rodney Reed did not kill Stacy Stites in 1996.

The Innocence Project says Stites' fiance Jimmy Fennell confessed to killing Stites because she was sleeping around behind his back.

In a sworn affidavit, a former inmate and white supremacist named Arthur Snow says Fennell, a former cop, made the comments while they were serving time together in a prison in Cuero, Texas.

Snow says Fennell approached him seeking protection in the prison from minority inmates. During one of the conversations, Snow says Fennell made a racist comment and said he had to kill his fiance because she was sleeping with a black man.

Reed has always claimed he and Stites were having a consensual relationship, which explains his DNA being recovered from her body.

Snow is now the fourth witness to come forward in recent weeks, casting doubt on Reed's conviction.

Reed is scheduled to die by lethal injection in three weeks on November 20th.
