...said he doubted the credibility of the defense witnesses and asked why lawyers did not cite a deteriorating mental status in Kelly's previous trials...

I will guess that not many, if any at all, will be ruled otherwise........It's just another avenue to ensure the fairness of the original sentence.
Note: Retardation is not the same thing as uneducated or ignorant. A lot of the inmates try to play stupid and will attempt to claim they are retarded........retarded is an IQ of 76 or lower.....You can't fake it.
