    If Perry was aware of any evidence clearing Willingham of any guilt for the alleged arson, does that not make him a murderer by definition? It comes across as pretty premeditated to me. He did have an innocent man killed, willingly. Does that not constitute conspiracy to murder?

    Is Perry ever going to be prosecuted for that? And if he is found guilty, would he then be eligible for the death penalty as well?
