I’m surprised more criminal defense lawyers aren’t using the “mentally challenged” excuse for their negro clients.
It would be provable via IQ tests, and what prosecutor would be brave enough to admit, “Yeah, but that’s just the norm for niggers”?
A jury in Westmoreland County has sentenced Melvin Knight to death for the torture and murder of Jennifer Daugherty eight years ago.
The jury spent about seven hours deliberating on Thursday, trying to decide Knight’s fate. He will now return to death row.
Knight’s original death sentence was overturned on appeal.
The testimony part of Knight’s re-sentencing trial began its last day with the jury of six men and six women listening to District Attorney John Peck appeal to the panel to return a death penalty verdict for Knight’s role in the 2010 torture killing of then 30-year-old Daugherty in Greensburg.
In closing arguments, Peck attacked the defense’s argument that Knight is too mentally challenged to execution.
The jury deliberated for more than five hours on Thursday and asked two questions. Just before 6 p.m., they told Judge Rita Hathaway that they could not reach a verdict, but the judge sent them back into deliberations.
