TEXAS inmate Quintin Jones is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on May 19, 2021.
The death row inmate was convicted of killing his great-aunt in 1999 when he was 20-years-old.
Jones, now 41, was arrested in 1999 for beating his great-aunt Berthena Bryant, 83, to death and stealing $30 to pay for drugs.
However, his great-aunt Mattie Long – the victim’s sister – said she has forgiven and asked for his life to be spared.
“I love him very much,” she told CBS News.
Long said she and Bryant were extremely close and does not believe Jones should die.
More than 120,000 people have signed a Change.org petition asking Abbott to grant Jones clemency.
The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles is considering clemency.
