Description

The Tennessean reveals that "state prison officials videotaped the prelude to the execution" - first in 40 years - of Robert Glen Coe, sentenced to death for the rape and murder of an 8-year-old girl. The story reports on the Tennessean's and other newspapers' efforts to obtain a non-censored copy of the videotape, and on the following release of a redacted version. "The Tennessean has returned to court and has asked the judge to order the state to release a less-censored version ... citing other documents obtained under FOI laws that reveal the identities of several state officials who appear on the tape."
