Convicted killer asks for review




The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — Attorneys for condemned killer Jay D. Scott, who has twice gotten last-minute reprieves, asked the U.S. Supreme Court Monday to decide whether it was proper for another court to refuse to review the case.

        Mr. Scott, 48, is to die Thursday by injection. Two scheduled executions were postponed, and the more re cent one on May 15, was stopped just 10 minutes beforehand.

        Timothy Sweeney, one of Mr. Scott's lawyers, said Monday he wants the Supreme Court to review the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' refusal to review a lower court ruling that Mr. Scott, diagnosed as schizophrenic, was competent to face execution.
