The  Associated Press is reporting that Stacy Kuykendall, former wife of Cameron Todd Willingham, will hold a press conference today before an Austin judge is scheduled to begin a hearing on whether or not Cameron Willingham was wrongly executed for the deaths of his three daughters in a 1991 fire ruled as arson.

Judge Charlie Baird is scheduled to begin the hearing at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Austin, at the request of the Willingham family.

Navarro County District Attorney Lowell Thompson filed a motion Monday asking that Baird recuse himself from the case due to his involvement in a prior appeal, and the judge's connnections with an anti-death penalty organization.

Stacy Kuykendall's press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday.
