ATLANTA -- The Georgia pardons board is set to review the case of a death row inmate convicted of the 1993 slayings of his parents and his 14-year-old sister in Northeast Cobb County.
The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles will meet Monday to review the case of Andrew Grant DeYoung, who is scheduled to die on Wednesday.
Prosecutors say DeYoung planned the killings so he could inherit his parents' estate and start a business. But DeYoung's 16-year-old brother escaped and went to a neighbor's house for help, and spotted DeYoung in the shadows.
He would be the second inmate executed in Georgia since the state changed execution drugs. The state was forced to switch after it surrendered its supply of sodium thiopental amid an investigation into how the drug was obtained.
