Developing: Americus rally to protest upcoming Georgia execution

Posted: Updated:
AMERICUS, Ga. -

Groups across Georgia are holding rallies and prayer vigils Monday to protest the scheduled execution of Warren Hill. 

A rally was scheduled in Americus Monday but was cancelled.

Hill is sentenced to die for the 1990 beating death of a fellow inmate at Lee State Prison. Hill's lawyers and the NAACP are arguing the execution should be stopped because he is too mentally disabled to understand his crime. 

Rallies and prayer vigils are being held in 9 other Georgia cities: Jackson, Atlanta, Athens, Augusta, Clarkesville, Dawson, Conyers, Marietta, and Savannah.

Hill is scheduled to be executed at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson at 7 p.m.
