UPDATE: Attorney, death penalty opponent Gary Parker to consult in Ricardo Strozier's defense

Atlanta attorney and former Columbus resident Gary Parker, a longtime death penalty opponent, said Thursday morning he will do everything he can “to stop the state of Georgia from killing” Ricardo Strozier. Afterward, he agreed to become a consultant for Strozier’s defense team. Strozier faces the death penalty if convicted of the Sept. 7, 2010, fatal shooting of Columbus radio DJ Heath Jackson.
