The Georgia Supreme Court ruled on Monday, February 4th in an unanimous decision that the Department of Corrections was not subject to the Administrative Procedures Act when they changed their execution protocol the day before the state planned to execute Warren Hill.Subtitle
This decision lifts the temporary halt on executions that was in place and paves the way for execution warrants to be issued.
Today two death warrants were in fact issued. Warren Hill is set for Tuesday, February 19th, and Andrew Cook is set for Thursday, February 21st. Both executions are scheduled to take place at 7 p.m.
There are no immediate action steps for clemency. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
Please continue to pray for Warren Hill, Andrew Cook and their families, and for the family of the victims in these cases.
