ATLANTA - The Supreme Court on Monday ordered a new hearing for death row inmate Troy Davis, giving the condemned killer a chance to present evidence his lawyers say could clear him in the murder of an off-duty police officer almost 20 years ago.

The court told a federal judge to hold a hearing to decide whether evidence "that could not have been obtained at the time of trial" could establish Davis' innocence. His case has become a rallying cry for death penalty opponents.

Rezoning request puts historic house in jeopardy

The empty, white frame house surrounded by large oak trees on Highway 84 near Washington Avenue warrants little more than a passing glance these days, but its possible removal to make way for development has renewed efforts to preserve the 122-year-old Hinesville property, viewed by some as a valuable part of the city's history.
