"A small-town Texan, Danny Wood is quick to tell you he’s not against the death penalty -- but he doesn’t think the state should execute his son. After all, Jeff Wood never killed anyone. Early on Jan. 2, 1996, Jeff Wood sat in a truck outside a Kerrville gas station while his friend Daniel Reneau went inside to steal a safe said to be full from the holiday weekend, according to court documents. When the clerk, Kriss Keeran, didn’t comply or respond to threats, Reneau shot him dead. Reneau was sentenced to death and executed in 2002. On Aug. 24, Wood’s own execution is scheduled. He was sentenced to death under Texas’ felony murder statute, commonly known as the law of parties, which holds that anyone involved in a crime resulting in death is equally responsible, even if they weren’t directly involved in the actual killing. Activists and Wood’s lawyers are scrambling to try to stop his execution." (08/11/16)
