No clemency for Warren Lee Hill

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - The State Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied a clemency request from attorneys representing condemned inmate Warren Lee Hill.

Hill was serving a life sentence for the 1985 murder of his girlfriend when he killed Joseph Handspike, another inmate at Lee Correctional Institute, on August 17, 1990.

In 1991, a jury convicted Hill of murder in the case and sentenced him to death.

Hill is scheduled to die by lethal injection on tonight in Jackson.
