Saving Swisher

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Richmond and famed anti-death penalty nun Sister Helen Prejean are asking Gov. Warner to stop Tuesday's execution of Swisher.

Lawyers for Swisher filed a final clemency request with the governor Friday. Warner delayed the execution for three weeks on July 1 and says he won't intervene again.

The Stuarts Draft man is convicted in the April 1997 rape and murder of Dawn Snyder.
