ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles has set a clemency hearing for a death row inmate scheduled to die next week.

The board announced Tuesday that it will hear from advocates for Daniel Anthony Lucas on April 26. The board is the only entity in Georgia that can commute a death sentence.

Lucas, who is 37, was convicted in 1999 for the deaths of 37-year-old Steven Moss, his 11-year-old son Bryan and 15-year-old daughter Kristin, who interrupted a burglary at their home near Macon in central Georgia.

Another man convicted in the murders, Brandon Joseph Rhode, was executed in 2010.

Lucas is scheduled to die April 27 by injection of the barbiturate pentobarbital at the state prison in Jackson.

Georgia has already executed four other inmates this year.
