Gregory Wilson’s request for stay of execution denied

Gregory Wilson's two requests to halt his Sept. 16 execution were denied today. Wilson has an IQ of 62 but Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett did not find sufficient evidence to support Wilson's claim that he is mentally retarded and ineligible for execution.

Gregory Wilson's two requests to halt his Sept. 16 execution were denied today. Wilson has an IQ of 62 but Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett did not find sufficient evidence to support Wilson's claim that he is mentally retarded and ineligible for execution.

From the Louisville Courier-Journal’s “Judge denies stay of execution for Gregory L. Wilson“:

A judge has denied two requests to halt the scheduled execution of an inmate convicted of murder and rape, saying the grounds for doing so were too flimsy to support a stay.

Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett on Wednesday ruled there is “overwhelming evidence” of Gregory L. Wilson’s guilt, making any DNA test of two-decade-old evidence useless to prove his innocence.

Bartlett also found too little evidence to support a claim that Wilson, 53, is mentally retarded and ineligible for execution.

Wilson is scheduled to die by lethal injection on Sept. 16.
