Capital stories and developments

Today brings lots of stories and developments on an array of death penalty fronts:

  • Charles Lane his this article in the Washington Post about the "junk science" that death row defendant Paul Gregory House may have presented to the Supreme Court in House v. Bell (details here)

  • As detailed in this Baltimore Sun article, "Maryland's highest court postponed today the execution of convicted murderer Vernon Lee Evans Jr., who was scheduled to be put to death this week."   Evans, the death row blogger, apparently will have a May hearing on an array of claims, including one concerning lethal injection.

  • As detailed in this AP story,  Delaware prosecutors "announced Monday they will not seek a new death penalty hearing for convicted killer Thomas Capano, a once wealthy and well-connected attorney."  Capano's death sentence was overturned last month by the Delaware Supreme Court because of a Ring problem with the state's death penalty process (details here).

UPDATE:  Karl Keys at Capital Defense Weekly has his own round-up here.  He also has this lengthy post explaining the lethal injection litigation before the Supeme Court.
