A Georgia inmate is scheduled to die by lethal injection Monday night as his attorneys seek a delay, arguing he's mentally disabled and should not be executed. Warren Lee Hill has twice come within hours of being executed, and his attorneys are appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay. Hill's attorneys are also challenging a new state law prohibiting the release of where the state obtained its execution drug supply.
The sale of a former Georgia Power plant to a boutique hotel owner is another sign of economic recovery in Savannah. Orlando-based developer Richard Kessler this week bought the former industrial building on the city's historic waterfront. A historic preservationist says he's optimistic about what can become of the site in part because of Kessler's track record for historically-appropriate development and the building's location.
