[SUPER=03-Christiansburg/1997]


Reid is on death row for the murder of Annie Lester. Reid was Lester's handyman. On October 12 of 1996 he hit her over the head with a can, strangled her with a telephone cord, stabbed her 22-times with a pair of scissors and tried to rape her.
He entered an alford plea to the crime in 1997, meaning he acknowledged the state's evidence-- without admitting guilt. Reid's new attorney, Jimmy Turk says the trial lawyers mishandled the case and lied to Reid. Turk says that's reason enough for a stay of execution.

end, instead of soaring toward the sky--it landed in mud. A second attempt was scrapped due to low winds. They couldn't do in 2003 what the brothers did in 1903. It was here on North Carolinas outer banks 100 years ago when the Wright Brothers soared into the record books with the first powered flight. The plane--with Orville at the controls was airborne for just 12 seconds-it traveled only 120 feet-- but on that day man discovered he WAS meant to fly. BUSH: THERE WAS A BOY NAMED JOHNNY.DAMNED IF THEY AINT FLEW. Even though the re-creation didn't fly--the orginal did, and at the North Carolina ceremony President Bush Praised that accomplishment
BUSH: WE REMEMBER ONE SMALL MACHINE AND REMEMBER THE GIANTS WHO FLEW IT." Without those giants making their short flight of just 120 feet--a man by the name of Armstrong would have never made his giant leap 240-thousand miles away. DREW LEVINSON CBS NEWS.))
