The state Board of Pardons and Paroles holds a clemency hearing today in Atlanta in the case of Donnie Lance: the 66 year-old Jackson County man is on Georgia’s death row. He is scheduled to be executed tomorrow night for the murders of his ex-wife and her boyfriend. Both of them were killed in Jackson County in November of 1997.

The board will meet Tuesday morning to consider the clemency petition for Lance, who was convicted in 1999 in Jackson County of beating to death his ex-wife, Joy Lance, and fatally shooting her boyfriend, Dwight “Butch” Wood Jr. Lance has maintained his innocence, and his adult children, whose mother was Joy Lance, have in recent months unsuccessfully called for new DNA testing to confirm whether he committed the crime.

In a letter attached to the clemency petition, the children said the pain of losing their mother would be compounded if the state kills their father.
