TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A serial killer who preyed on older, gay men during a spree that left six dead on or near the U.S. East Coast 25 years ago is scheduled to be executed at Florida State Prison. Fifty-seven-year-old Gary Ray Bowles is set to receive a lethal injection Thursday evening, convicted of murder in one of the six known slayings.

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a Georgia inmate hanged himself in his isolation cell while two deputies and a nurse failed to follow inmate monitoring policy. The Telegraph reports the issues surrounding the death of 40-year-old William Elder Homan are detailed in an internal affairs investigation by the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. The records obtained by the newspaper this week say Homan killed himself in February. It says the deputies doctored records that said they conducted hourly inmate checks.
