Georgia man who killed girl has execution temporarily stayed

A judge has temporarily delayed the execution of a Georgia man who was scheduled to die Tuesday for killing an 8-year-old girl 46 years ago. A lawyer for Virgil Delano Presnell Jr. had argued that he is “profoundly brain damaged.”

I never understood the argument that - someone is stupid so they shouldn't pay for their crime. If he's stupid he's much more likely to do it again. Best to rid the world of him. He's a child rapist and child killer, nothing I can think of worse than that.
His brain is not functioning now but then he was sober and healthy. No excuses and the sentence must be carried out
