Decision delayed in Warren Lee Hill clemency

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - State officials declared that a decision would not be handed down Monday from the State Board of Pardons and Paroles regarding a request for clemency a death row inmate convicted of killing a fellow inmate.

The Board said they would make a decision prior to the scheduled execution of Warren Lee Hill on Tuesday, January 27.

Hill was sentenced to death in Lee County for the 1990 beating death of Joseph Handspike.

The Board could also grant clemency and commute a death sentence to life (with the possibility of parole) or commute to life without the possibility of parole.

However, the Board can still deny clemency.
