    GA - William Gulley's death sentence O/T in '94 rape, murders

    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.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    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.
