Two days after a last-hour reprieve, it appears condemned Georgia murderer Warren Lee Hill will be spared execution for at least a few more weeks.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a 30-day stay of execution for Hill (pictured), whose attorneys say he's mentally disabled.
Georgia had asked the justices to lift the stay, which was granted minutes before Hill had been scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday night. A federal appeals court in Atlanta halted the execution to give lawyers a month for written arguments on whether Hill should be spared under the federal ban on executions of the mentally disabled.
Does that mean that now no black person can be executed???
Yes Bubba that means you can be executed for your stupidity and hatered
Poor guy....has no idea what's really going on. At this point, if I were in his shoes, I'd welcome death. What kind of existence is that?
Who is paying for his attorneys? Obama?
I think its great, how they always wait till the last minute to get a judge to grant a stay. Its like being executed multiple times until.... OK its for real this time.
No doubt.....there probably spending thousands just on his anxiety medication.....He probably deserves to die, but that is inhumane.......
What about troy davis? He was executed (in georgia) last year and there was no physical evidence linking him to the crime. But this idiot gets a stay because he is a mental case. He should die plain and simple.
