Arkansas Court Hears Arguments In Death Row Case
A lawyer for a death row inmate convicted in the 1997 slaying of a security guard at a North Little Rock mall says the Arkansas Supreme Court should send the prisoner's case back to a lower court for a hearing.
One of Andrew Engram's lawyers, Julie Vandiver, told the state's highest court Thursday that the justices should send his case back to a lower court for a hearing on whether he had good cause to file a petition after a deadline to do so had passed.
Engram was convicted of killing Laurie White. Engram's lawyers say he has an intellectual disability.
The state says Engram's case should be dismissed.
