ATLANTA — A clemency board took no action Friday on the planned execution of inmate Warren Lee Hill at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles had invited Hill’s representatives to plead for clemency at 9 a.m. Friday.
“No decision in the (Warren Lee Hill) Hill case is expected today. I will advise you as to the board’s decision when it is made,” stated a Friday email from Steve Hayes, board spokesman.
Courts all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court have either dismissed or refused to hear any appeals already filed.
According to an earlier email from the parole board: “In 1991, a jury convicted Warren Lee Hill of murder and sentenced him to death. Hill was serving a life sentence (in the Lee Correctional Institution) for the 1986 murder of his girlfriend, when he killed Joseph Handspike, another inmate at the Lee Correctional Institute, on August 17, 1990.”
