The Georgia Supreme Court on Monday tossed out the death sentence of a condemned inmate once dubbed a "guardian angel" for saving two people's lives.

The court ordered a new sentencing trial for William Marvin Gulley after finding his trial lawyers failed to show jurors that Gulley had previously rescued two people in Atlanta during a three-day span in 1992.

From January 2006:


Hodges cited the case of William Marvin Gulley, who killed an 81-year-old Albany woman and raped her 60-year-old daughter. The state Supreme Court overturned Gulley's death sentence last summer after finding his lawyers failed to show jurors that Gulley saved the lives of two people in 1992...

He said he later agreed to a sentence of life without parole for Gulley because the victims' family did not want another trial.
