Eddie Lee Howard has been exonerated and was released from Mississippi's death row in December after he was wrongfully sentenced to death in 1994 for the murder and rape of 84-year-old Georgia Kemp in Columbus, Mississippi. Howard was initially tied to the crime by a doctor who compared bite marks on Kemp's body to Howard's teeth. Nearly three decades later, the Mississippi Supreme Court recognized that bite-mark comparisons were not enough to tie Howard to the murder. As a result, the case was reversed, rendered and remanded.

Vice President Pence called his soon-to-be successor Kamala Harris on Thursday to congratulate her, more than two months after she and President-elect Joe Biden won the November election and just five days before the new administration takes office. Pence’s belated call to Harris came a week after Congress formally certified the electoral college votes. Pence recognized Biden and Harris as the winners when he declared it Jan. 7 at 3:41 a.m. once Congress completed the count. President Trump’s refusal to accept the election results complicated Pence’s timeline for reaching out to Harris. Trump hasn’t called Biden to congratulate him and has not formally conceded defeat, and for weeks Pence deferred to Trump on their post-election position. Not only did Pence call Harris to offer his congrats, he also is planning to attend the inauguration, which Trump is not. Read more by clicking the link in our bio.
