Funeral services for Troy Davis have been set for Saturday at Jonesville Baptist Church, according to his sister, Kimberly Davis.

Mr. Davis died by lethal injection on September 21 at the Jackson Correctional Institute in Jackson, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.

Thousands of supporters worldwide protested Mr. Davis’s execution, saying the case raised too many doubts about his guilt.

Mr. Davis’s mother, Virginia Davis, died in April. The family says they are glad she did not live to see her son executed.
