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.
