Ray Johnson's execution date set

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Supreme Court has denied death row convicted murderer Ray Johnson's appeal for a new trial, ending his appeal process.

Now his execution has been set for Thursday, November 19.

In 1998 Johnson was convicted for the 1994 brutal murder and rape of Angela Sizemore.

In 2011, just seven days before his scheduled execution, Johnson was allowed an appeal for a new trial based on new DNA testing of evidence.
