Alabama killer's sentencing set for June 26

GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - An Etowah County judge has set a resentencing date for Glenn Holladay, convicted of a triple killing 23 years ago.

A clerk in Circuit Court Judge Allen Millican's office said the new sentencing hearing for Holladay is at 2 p.m. June 26. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in January upheld a federal judge's 2006 ruling that Holladay cannot be executed because of his level of mental retardation.

He was convicted in the 1986 slayings of his ex-wife, her boyfriend and a 16-year-old neighbor at a trailer home in the Tidmore Bend area.

Over the objections of prosecutors, a judge ruled that the death row inmate's average IQ score of 64 meant that he could not be executed.
