Death row inmate receives last minute stay of execution

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - The Georgia Supreme Court has unanimously granted a stay of execution to a man convicted of killing a fellow inmate.

Warren Hill had been scheduled to be executed Monday night at the state penitentiary at Jackson. But the high court said it was staying the execution so it could consider an appeal by the inmate over Georgia's recent switch to a single-drug execution method.

Hill was convicted in the 1990 beating death of Joseph Handspike.
