"It was just after 4pm on July 23 and the temperature was firmly in the triple digits by the time 20-year-old Nick Been took to the microphone set up outside the iron gates that surround the Texas governor's mansion in Austin. A small crowd of anti-death penalty activists had joined Been's friends and family on the sunny street just steps from the state’s red granite Capitol. They were there to call for Gov. Greg Abbott to halt the impending execution of Been's uncle, Jeff Wood, who is scheduled to die on August 24, just five days after his 43rd birthday, for a crime that everyone, including prosecutors, admits he did not commit."
