Supreme Court To Review Case of Low IQ Man on Death Row in Florida

Freddie Lee Hall's IQ has range of 71-80, Florida prohibits executing inmates with an IQ of lower than 70


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court will take up a Florida case over how judges should determine if a death row inmate is mentally disabled, and thus ineligible for execution.

The justices said Monday they will review a Florida Supreme Court ruling that upheld the death sentence for a man who scored just above the state's cutoff for mental disability as measured by IQ tests.
