Petition filed in the 299th District Court in Travis County on behalf of Todd Willingham's family for a Court of Inquiry.

Supporters of Cameron Todd Willingham hailed an Austin district judge's decision Monday to open a two-day court of inquiry next month to determine whether Willingham was wrongfully convicted and executed in the deaths of his three daughters, who perished in a Corsicana house fire in 1991.

Former Gov. Mark White, a member of the legal team that petitioned for the rare legal proceeding, said he believes there is "overwhelming scientific evidence" to support fire experts' findings that the arson investigation that led to Willingham's conviction was outdated and unreliable.

"We're prepared to put on witnesses that will be persuasive that the forensic evidence was tantamount to witchcraft," said White, who was a Democratic governor in 1983-1987 and earlier served as state attorney general.
