ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles met Monday to decide if convicted murderer and rapist Marcus Wellons should receive clemency. The Board voted to deny it.

Wellons was convicted of the murder and rape of 15-year-old India Roberts of Cobb County back in 1989.

In 1993, he was found guilty of the crimes and sentenced to death for the murder and life in prison for the rape.

Wellons is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday at 7 p.m.
