A federal judge has rejected a Virginia death row inmate’s claim that a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in another case precludes his execution. The judge dismissed Alfredo R. Prieto’s motion on Wednesday. Prieto was on California’s death row when a DNA sample connected him to the 1988 slayings of two George Washington University students. Last month, the Supreme Court ruled in a Florida case that a rigid cutoff on IQ test scores should not be used to determine whether someone is intellectually disabled and therefore ineligible for execution. Prieto’s lawyers used that defense during his Virginia trial’s sentencing phase. Prieto will appeal the ruling to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
