Supreme Court reverses ruling sparing killer who forgot the crimeThe nine justices ruled unanimously that Alabama can execute 67-year-old Vernon Madison, who has spent decades on death row. The amount of time condemned inmates spend on death row has increased from seven years in 1987 to more than 19 years in 2017, Breyer said, meaning the justices will face more cases of states trying to execute prisoners suffering diseases of old age.
