The Georgia Supreme Court ruling in State v. Worsley is available in Adobe .pdf format.
"Court reinstates death penalty in west Ga. case," is the AP report, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Georgia's highest court has reversed a Muscogee County court ruling in a decision that reinstates the death sentence for Johnnie Worsley for the 1995 rape and murder of his 17-year-old stepdaughter and the murder of his wife.
The Supreme Court of Georgia's unanimous decision was released Monday.
The court's summary of the case states that Worsley drove to Alabama after the killings and stole a car from a dealership. Worsley left behind a note in the car that stated: "May you all forget for what I done. I now must go to hell and pay for what I am, but still love you."
