Georgia's parole board will hold a clemency hearing Wednesday for the death row inmate known as the "Stocking Strangler."

That's just one day before the state is scheduled to execute Carlton Gary.

A jury convicted Gary of malice murder, rape and burglary for the 1977 murders of three women.

Prosecutors said Gary attacked nine elderly women in Columbus in late 1977 and early 1978. Most of them were choked with stockings.

Gary's lawyers contend that police arrested the wrong man and newly discovered evidence raises doubts about his guilt.
