Three hours before the state was about to execute Samuel David Crowe, the 5-member Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles commuted his sentence to life in prison without the possibility of parole. As of yet, the Board has not provided an official justification or explanation for its decision. It is reported, however, that Crowe "takes full responsibility for his crime and experiences profound remorse." See article here.
