GA Supreme Court lifts stays for two convicted killers


May 19, 2008

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Georgia Supreme Court has lifted stays of
execution for two convicted murderers.

The court had halted the executions of Jack Alderman and Curtis
Osborne in the fall as it awaited the Supreme Court's ruling on the
constitutionality of lethal injections.

It dissolved the stays on Monday without comment.

Alderman is sentenced to die in the 1974 slaying of his
20-year-old wife, Barbara, in Chatham County. Osborne is facing
execution for the 1990 killings of two people in Spalding County.
