A change of heart by a Danville judge could spare the life of a Danville killer.
Judge James Ingram says he sentenced William Ira Saunders to death in 19-90 based on Saunders' violent behavior in jail AFTER his conviction.
Now Ingram and Danville prosecutor Bill Fuller have asked Governor George Allen-- and the Governor's agreed -- to offer Saunders life in prison instead of death.
Saunders shot Mervin Gwill in the back of the head and robbed him during an alleged drug deal in Danville in 19-89.
Prosecutor Bill Fuller says several of the state's witnesses have since racked up lengthy criminal records that would make them unreliable witnesses on appeal.
So if Saunders gives up his appeals, he gets life in prison WITHOUT parole.
