Lee murderer's execution stay overturned


Warren Lee Hill, who murdered an inmate at the Lee State Prison, is again subject to execution by the state. The State Supreme Court over turned a Fulton Co. court ruling.

Hill got a stay by arguing that the state should reveal who supplies its lethal injection drugs, and that they should be tested.

Hill was serving a life sentence for murdering his 18 year old girl friend by shooting her 11 times. He beat Joseph  Handspike to death with a nail studded board in 1990 and was sentenced to death the next year.

He has been on death row for 23 years.
