Duncan case goes back to the courtroom

Condemned killer Joseph Duncan will be back in an Idaho federal courtroom in January, for a two-week hearing on whether he was mentally competent when he waived his right to appeal his death sentence. U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge is now sorting through issues relating to experts who will testify; he issued a ruling last week on that. You can read a full report here from AP reporter Rebecca Boone. Duncan’s defense attorneys say the crux of the case is whether Duncan suffered from religious delusions or merely held unusual religious beliefs, according to court documents. More here. Betsy Russell, EOB

I know this a legal matter, but honestly do you really care whether Duncan suffered from relgious delusions or merely held unusual religious beliefs?
