Execution scheduled for man convicted in 1990

(WTVM) - The commissioner of the Georgia Department of Corrections has scheduled an execution for a man convicted in the 1990 killing of a fellow inmate.

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens announced that the execution of Warren Lee hill has been scheduled for 7 p.m. on July 18.

Authorities say Hill attacked Joseph Handspike as he slept and beat him to death with a board. Hill was serving a life sentence at the time for the 1986 slaying of his 18-year-old girlfriend, who died after being shot 11 times.
