The Latest: Georgia high court declines to stop execution
Lawyers for a Georgia death row inmate have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the state's plans to execute the inmate for a 1996 shotgun slaying. The lawyers for 42-year-old Marion Wilson Jr. asked as the scheduled 7 p.m. execution time neared that the U.S. Supreme Court block Georgia's plans to carry out the death sentence and allow a review of a lower court decision rejecting Wilson's claims. Earlier Thursday, the Georgia Supreme Court rejected two court challenges by Wilson over arguments claiming prosecutorial misconduct and Wilson's ineligibility to receive the death penalty.
