"Lawyers for Ga. death row inmate ask US Supreme Court to prevent execution," is the AP report, via the Republic.
Lawyers for a Georgia death row inmate are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to step in to prevent the execution of their client, who they say is mentally disabled.
Lawyers for Warren Hill have long argued he is mentally disabled and shouldn't be executed. Three experts for the state who originally said Hill was not mentally disabled now say he is, citing advances in research.
A federal appeals court temporarily halted Hill's execution in February to consider whether he should have a new hearing on the new testimony. The court ruled last month Hill is procedurally barred from having a new hearing. No execution date has been set.
