Pena di morte appello del Papa

Il giudice Phillip Shepherd della Franklin Country Circuit Court ha sospeso a tempo indeterminato l’esecuzione di Gregory Wilson programmata per lo scorso 16 settembre.

Contro la sentenza capitale era sceso il campo anche il Vaticano. Una lettera a nome di Benedetto XVI, firmata dal nunzzio apostolico degli Stati Uniti, L’aecivescovo Pietro Sambi, era stata consegnata al governatore del Kentucky, Steve Beshear, per chiedergli di commutare la condanna a morte per Gregory Wilson in pena detentiva. Sono stati l’arcivescovo di Louisville, Joseph Kurtz, e Marian McCLURE Taylor, direttore esecutivo del Consiglio delle Chiese del Kentucky, a consegnare al governatore il messaggio. Wilson è stato giudicato colpevole, nel 1988, dello stupro e dell’omicidio di una donna. Ha fatto appello contro la decisione del tribunale affermando la sua innocenza e chiedendo il test del DNA a indagini sukl suo ritardo mentale. L’esecuzione di malati psichici è stata dichiarata incostituzionale dalla Corte suprema.
