Oral arg. – Miss.S.Ct. – Monday, Dec. 8, 2014

At 1:30, on Monday December 8, 2014, the Miss.S.Ct. will hear the case of Ricky Chase v. State.

Chase is on death row. The Mississippi Supreme Court had ordered that the trial court conduct a hearing to determine whether Chase’s  intellectual capacity was such as to disqualify him from execution as per Atkins v. Virginia.  The trial court, after a hearing, determined that he did have sufficient intellectual capacity that he could be executed.  Chase appeals.
