ATLANTA (AP) -- The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles is weighing whether to spare the life of a death row inmate set to be executed next week.
Family members of Warren Lee Hill were among the witnesses testifying on his behalf at a hearing Friday that lasted for about three hours.
Hill was serving a life sentence in 1990 for the 1986 slaying of his girlfriend when he killed a fellow inmate.
A jury in 1991 convicted Hill of murder and sentenced him to death.
Hill's execution is scheduled for Wednesday.
Hill's lawyer argues he is mentally disabled and shouldn't be executed, and is asking the board to commute Hill's sentence to life in prison without parole or to grant a stay of 90 days so the U.S. Supreme Court has an opportunity to review the case.
Board spokesman Steve Hayes says no decision in the Hill case is expected Friday. The board could rule any time between now and Hill's execution date.
