On July 18th, Judge Gail Tusan of the Fulton County Superior Court indefinitely stayed the execution of Warren Hill, a person with mental retardation, to consider the merits of his lethal injection challenge. Today, the State did not appeal the ruling.
The following is a statement from Brian Kammer, attorney for Warren Hill:
“We are deeply relieved that Warren Hill will not be executed tonight in order for the courts to more thoughtfully deliberate Mr. Hill’s mental retardation claim and the extreme secrecy surrounding Georgia’s lethal injection law.”
