At 1:30 the Court will hear the case of James Hutto v. State of Mississippi.
Hutto was sentenced to death in the killing of Edith Simpson. The two had gone to a Vicksburg casino. On the way back to Clinton, Hutto killed Simpson, left her body in a field, and fled the state in her automobile. On appeal, Hutto raises 14 issues, the first being that the prosecution abused its discretion in seeking the death penalty against Hutto when it did not do so in the case of George Affleck when the facts in the Affleck case were worse.
Watch the argument here.
