There was a Supreme Court landmark case 10 years ago when the court agreed to barred the executions of those that had the mental capacity of a pre adolescent child and Texas already ignored the decision with the execution of Marvin Wilson this past August, a mentally challenged man who almost cut off his circulation a number of times according to his family.
