Savannah man's execution moves forward, for now

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm said they've denied Roy Blankenship's request to test DNA evidence from the attack he was convicted and sentenced to die for.

Blankenship is set to die a week from Wednesday for the rape and murder of 78-year-old Sarah Mims Bowen, who died of heart failure during the attack.
