BREAKING: Supreme Court Will Allow Mentally Retarded Man To Die

CBS News’ Charlie Kaye reports that the Supreme Court will not halt the execution of Marvin Wilson, a man with an IQ of 61 scheduled to be executed at 6pm Texas time (7pm ET) tonight. The Court’s inaction comes despite the fact that executing the mentally retarded is unconstitutional.



The Supreme Court’s order, which consists of only two sentences of boilerplate, is available here.
