The case of Nicholas Lee Ingram, the British-born killer executed in Georgia’s electric chair. Check out “I Like To Torture Men While Their Women Watch” for the full story

Description

There was little doubt about his guilt, but should British-born torture-killer Nicholas Lee Ingram have ended up the 434th customer of “Old Sparky,” Georgia’s ageing electric chair? Ingram’s lawyer Clive Stafford-Smith certainly didn’t think so. And he wasn’t alone. Alcoholic amnesia had deprived the killer of any memory of his crime, and antipsychotic drugs had left him in a zombie-like state during his trial. Read “I Like To Torture Men While Their Women Watch” for the full story.

From Georgia to Georgia…this time the former Soviet republic at the edge of Europe. Moving there from bustling LA to a new life in a rural, mountainous region seemed to have been a great move for businessman Ryan Smith and his wife Lora. But a terrible fate awaited them.
