McDonnell denies clemency for Lewis

Gov. Bob McDonnell has declined to intervene in the scheduled execution of Teresa Lewis.

In 2003, Lewis plead guilty to two counts of capital murder for hire of her husband and step-son. She was sentenced to death on both counts, with an execution date set for this Thursday, Sept. 23.

Yesterday, the governor released a statement after finding no reason to set aside the sentence.
