A day before his planned execution. a Mississippi inmate made a last-minute appeal Monday after the FBI acknowledged it erred in analyzing the forensic evidence, the Washington Post reports.

Willie Jerome Manning, 44, was to die today at 6 p.m. by lethal injection after being convicted of the 1992 killings of two college students.

The Post reported that the FBI conceded over the weekend that mistakes were made.

The main concern was of an agent’s exaggerated claim that he can trace hairs to an African American.

The governor and court are to decide on a stay Tuesday.
