An execution date has been set for one of Georgia’s most notorious serial killers.
Carlton Gary is scheduled to die by lethal injection on March 15 at 7 p.m. Known as the “Stocking Strangler,” Gary, now 67, was convicted of raping three elderly women and then strangling them with their own pantyhose.
The three murders all took place in a middle class neighborhood in Columbus, Ga. more than four decades ago. He was also linked to other attacks in Columbus and New York.
