ATLANTA (AP) -- A Georgia death row inmate convicted of murder in the slaying of a store clerk who was set to testify against his son is to be executed next month.
The attorney general's office said in a news release Tuesday that Tommy Lee Waldrip is set to die at 7 p.m. on July 10. Waldrip was convicted in October 1994 in the death of Keith Evans.
Authorities say Waldrip, his son John Mark Waldrip and his brother-in-law Howard Livingston shot Evans with birdshot in the face and neck and then beat him to death.
Evans had testified against John Mark Waldrip in his armed robbery trial in 1990. John Mark Waldrip was convicted, but the court granted his motion for a new trial. Evans was set to testify at the retrial.
