"In the major-league draft of 1971, the first player chosen from the State of Oklahoma was Ron Williamson. When he signed with the Oakland A's, he said goodbye to his hometown of Ada and left to pursue his dremas of big-league glory.

Six years later he was back, his dremas broken by a bad arm and bad habits -- drinking, drugs, and women. He began to show signs of mental illness. Unable to keep a job, he moved in with his mother and slept twenty hours a day on her sofa.

In 1982, a twenty-one-year-oldcocktail waitress in Ada named Debra Sue Carter was raped and murdered, and for five year the police could not solve the crime. For reasons that were never clear, they suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were finally arrested in 1987 and charged with capital murder.

With no physical evidence, the prosecution's case was built on junk science and the testimony of jailhouse snitches and covicts. Dennis Fritz was found guilty and given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was sent to death row."
