ATLANTA, Ga---Georgia's Supreme court says a man convicted of a 2005 murder should not have been convicted. At least not the way he was convicted.
Calvin Foster was sentenced to life in prison for the 2005 murder of his wife Daphne.
The court reversed that conviction on appeal, saying the judge failed to define mentally ill and mentally retarded for the jury.
There was testimony in the case that foster had a mental age of about 14.
