ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Civil rights groups joined Amnesty International to host a rally for death row inmate Reggie Clemons on Saturday, two days before a new hearing will determine whether he lives or dies.

Organizers, supporters and musicians gathered at Kiener Plaza in downtown St. Louis between noon and 3 p.m. Amnesty International hopes the rally will increase awareness of the case, which organizers claim has been deeply flawed.

Clemons is one of four men convicted in the 1991 rape and murder of two sisters on the Chain of Rocks Bridge.

On Monday, a court-appointed "special master" will review the evidence and make recommendations on Clemons' sentence.

One suspect convicted in the killings has already been executed.
