The US Supreme Court 28
June 2007 blocked the execution in Texas of the schizophrenic killer
who gunned down his parents-in-law 15 years ago and then tried to
summon Jesus to the witness stand. The nation's highest tribunal
found that Scott Louis Panetti, 49, was aware of his actions, but
was not mentally well enough to understand why he was condemned to
death. "The court's ruling today is consistent with a long history
of society's revulsion at executing the insane," said Richard Dieter,
executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center.
