Death Row Inmate In Court
(Indianapolis, IN) — Indiana’s next inmate scheduled for execution is in court this week in an attempt to reverse that fate. The attorney for convicted killer Michael Overstreet is trying to prove he’s not competent to be executed. His public defender says professionals have deemed him without the ability to rationally understand why the state is planning to execute him. He was sentenced in the killing of 18-year-old Kelly Eckart in 1997.
