The new key witness being relied on by attorneys to stop the execution of Richard Glossip once told authorities he lied “all the time,” records show.

Glossip’s execution was postponed last week after Michael G. Scott, a former inmate who said he served time with Justin Sneed, testified recently that he heard Sneed brag about setting Glossip up as the fall guy for the 1997 murder of Barry Alan Van Treese.

However, Scott’s credibility has come into question.

In a 2005 Oklahoma Department of Corrections document, Scott said he was a habitual liar — answering “yes all the time” to the question “Have you lied about something or not told the truth?”
