A mentally retarded person towards the execution in Georgia (USA).

GEORGIA (USA) – Warren Hill is a «mentally retarded» person who has been «sentenced to death in Georgia (Usa)». He has been convicted of «a murder» committed in «1991». He will be «executed on Friday» (ANSA).

In «2002», the «Supreme Court» declared «the execution of people suffering from mental disturbances» as «uncostitutional» (ibidem). Nevertheless, «at the time of the sentence», the State of Georgia «had not recognised» that Warren Hill had «the status of mentally retarded» and the «present unanimous opinion of the doctors doesn’t seem able to change things» (ANSA).
