ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

 

Death row inmate Warren Lee Hill is challenging a Georgia statute that makes information about the manufacturer of the drug used in executions a "state secret."

His attorney's claim the statute is unconstitutional.

Hill was given the death sentence in 1991 after a Lee County jury convicted him of murder in the 1990 bludgeoning death of a fellow inmate, Joseph Handspike, at the Lee Correctional Institute.

Since his conviction, Hill's attorneys have filed multiple state and federal proceedings, many claiming unsuccessfully that Hill, who once served as a petty officer in the U.S. Navy, is mentally retarded and therefore ineligible for the death penalty.
