COLUMBUS, Ga. — The mother of a slain Georgia police officer says she is agonizing over the wait while the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether to allow the execution of Troy Davis.

Davis was convicted 22 years ago of shooting her son Mark MacPhail. Davis insists he is innocent and has appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Anneliese MacPhail told The Associated Press on Wednesday she's "a nervous wreck." Her comments came about 90 minutes after Davis' scheduled execution had passed.

She says Davis has had "all the chances in the world" to clear his name.
