Lee County murderer's execution date announced

ATLANTA — Convicted murderer Warren Lee Hill faces execution at 7 p.m. Feb. 19, according to state Attorney General Samuel S. Olens.

Hill concluded direct state and federal appeals proceedings, a press release stated. Hill was serving a life sentence in Lee Correctional Institution for fatally shooting his 18-year-old girlfriend 11 times.

While incarcerated for his girlfriend's murder, Hill fatally beat another inmate with a board in 1990. Following appeals in the state and federal courts after a 1991 trial, Hill made an appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court in July 2012. He was granted a stay of execution to plead the case.

The court held on Feb. 4 that the Department of Corrections' recent decision to replace a three-drug cocktail with one drug is not subject to the Georgia Administrative Procedure act. That opened the way to reschedule the execution.

I cannot understand what the problem is about the drug choice.. If you have ever been "put to sleep" so to speak, for surgery, it is not painful at all. As a matter of fact I never felt a thing and I have had more than 16 instances where I have had anesthesia and never had an unpleasant experience at all. I can't understand what the fuss is about the drug. Why not just OD the guy and be done with it? Good lord......!!!!!!! Hell, I have some extra money lying around....I will even be willing, as I am sure many Georgians will, to contribute to a drug fund, to pay for the medication to give them. Another thing that always fascinated me was how they use such sterile procedures when they are going to inject someone to KILL them......now that is a knee slapper.
