Execution appeal goes to U.S. justices
Attorneys for a man scheduled to be executed Tuesday for killing a Brunswick County convenience store owner yesterday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt his execution while justices consider reviewing the case.
Earlier this week, attorneys for Kevin Green, 31, said the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals erred when it ruled in February that he had passed the statute of limitations for claiming ineffective counsel.
The appeals court denied Green’s request for a stay on Monday.
School for deaf to close June 30
The Virginia School for the Deaf, Blind and Multi-Disabled in Hampton will close at the end of next month, clearing the path to consolidate the state’s two schools for students with visual and hearing impairments.
The state Board of Education voted yesterday to end state-operated programs at the Hampton school, including residential and day-program services, on June 30.
Forty students are enrolled in Hampton’s programs this school year, and all but 14 are graduating or moving to the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind in Staunton, state Department of Education spokesman Charles Pyle said.
The decision is part of a plan approved by the General Assembly in 2006 to consolidate the two schools on the Staunton campus, where about 120 students are enrolled.
