Shirley Skinner's Family Members to Appeal for Clemency


Family members will today make a formal appeal for clemency for Shirley Skinner, the 78-year-old woman convicted in the shooting death of her granddaughter’s estranged husband, Steven Watkins.

 

Relatives say Skinner should be released early because of her advanced age and declining health. But family and friends of Watkins oppose the petition. Both sides will appear today before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.

 

The board will not take action today but will forward a recommendation to Governor Pat Quinn at a later time.
