Convicted serial killer David Leonard Wood is scheduled to face a judge this morning. A hearing will be held to clarify his legal representation. Wood is currently being held in the El Paso County Jail. He is on death row for killing several El Paso women nearly 20-years ago and was scheduled to die this past August, but a last minute stay of execution was issued. Wood is awaiting a hearing that will determine whether he is mentally retarded, as his lawyers claim he is. If Wood is in fact found to be retarded, he cannot be executed by the state of Texas.
