More Texas Republicans are calling for Gov. Greg Abbott to delay an upcoming execution.

Rodney Reed is scheduled to be executed on November 20th for the 1996 murder of a 19-year-old woman.

U.S. Representative Chip Roy of Hays County, a former federal prosecutor, says there's reasonable doubt about Reed's guilt.

State Representatives John Raney of College Station and John Cyrier of Lockhart also have questions.

The murder happened in Cyrier's district.

A new witness says the victim's fiancé admitted to the killing, and there are also forensic issues raising questions about Reed's guilt.
