During his 25 years on death row, Richard Glossip, 60, has gone to deathwatch to await execution three times. He was granted a stay of execution each time due to concerns about the state’s lethal injection protocol. Glossip claims he was wrongfully accused and convicted of masterminding the murder of his boss, Barry Van Treese, in January 1997. The conviction was largely based on the testimony of Justin Sneed, who admitted to killing Van Treese but claimed Glossip hired him to carry out the murder.

“It’s the lack of evidence right here that is just alarming,” said Oklahoma state Representative Justin Humphrey in an interview with Dr. Phil in 2021. “This guy may be actually innocent.”

On April 24, 2023, Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond wrote to the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board urging them to recommend clemency for Glossip. On May 1, 2023, Attorney General Drummond asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of execution for Glossip, stating that there were enough problems with his conviction to warrant a new trial. On Friday, May 5, SCOTUS granted the stay, stopping Glossip’s execution until two appeals filed by his attorneys can be considered.

Glossip’s case was featured on Dr. Phil in 2015 and again in 2021 when Dr. Phil interviewed him on death row.
