ATLANTA Georgia's pardons board is set to consider the case of a man scheduled to be put to death next week for the killing of an Atlanta preschool teacher.
The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles is meeting Friday to consider whether to grant clemency to Emmanuel Hammond, who is set
to be executed on Tuesday for the killing of 27-year-old Atlanta preschool teacher Julie Love.
His attorney Brian Mendelsohn said Hammond will not be making a
clemency presentation at the meeting and will instead focus his efforts in litigating the case in court.
Love was pulled inside Hammond's car after she ran out of gas in north Atlanta, and her body was found more than a year later in a trash dump.
