ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles is weighing whether to grant clemency in the case of death row inmate set to be executed on Thursday.

 The board met Tuesday in Atlanta and heard from friends and family of Andrew Allen Cook, who was convicted in the 1995 slayings of two Mercer University students.

 Grant Patrick Hendrickson and Michele Lee Cartagena were shot several times as they sat in a car at Lake Juliette.

 Cook didn't know either victim, and authorities say the crime was random.

 Tuesday's hearing was not open to the public or media. Three family friends of Cook said after the hearing that the family would have no comment.
