Man spared from death penalty just hours before planned execution

Jimmy Meders, 58, had been scheduled to receive a lethal injection at 7 pm Thursday at the Georgia state prison in Jackson. But the State Board of Pardons and Paroles released its decision granting him clemency around 1 p.m. The board commuted his death sentence to life imprisonment without parole. Meders was convicted in the 1987 slaying of a convenience store clerk during a robbery.
