ST. LOUIS (AP) A group trying to free a death row inmate that it believes was wrongly convicted will host a birthday event for him tomorrow in St. Louis.

The celebration starts at 4 p.m. at the Schlafly Library on North Euclid.
It will feature ``The Color of Justice,'' a documentary about Reggie Clemons and his struggle for justice. Supporters will discuss what actions can be taken to help his case.

Clemons was convicted of being involved in the disappearances and killings of two sisters in 1991 on the Chain of Rocks Bridge in St. Louis.

Marlin Gray was executed in October 2005 for his role, although
he maintained his innocence to the end.
