ATLANTA (AP) - Prison officials in Georgia are preparing to execute a man Wednesday evening for the fatal shooting of a convenience store clerk 25 years ago.
Ray Jefferson Cromartie, 52, is scheduled for a lethal injection at the state prison in Jackson. He was convicted of malice murder and sentenced to death for the April 1994 killing of 50-year-old Richard Slysz in Thomasville, just inside Georgia's southern border.
The state says Cromartie also shot and gravely injured another convenience store clerk a few days earlier.
