More on the reassignment of psychiatrist who tested Walton

The Roanoke Times has this article with more news on the state-employed psychiatrist who was reassigned after some dispute over the IQ testing of deathrow inmate Percy Walton, whose case is now pending before Chief Judge Samuel Wilson of the W.D. Va., who will decide whether Walton is fit to be executed.

The article notes the following: "Assistant Attorney General Robert Harris admitted in a federal court hearing last week in Roanoke that he was angry that General ordered the test so close to Walton's scheduled execution. And one of Walton's lawyers, Nash Bilisoly of Norfolk, suggested at the same hearing that Harris may have had something to do with General's reassignment."
