Pennsylvania death row inmate, Charles Malloy, has been given a new sentencing hearing. Malloy's death sentence was vacated by the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court on Wednesday. The court found that a jury would not have been likely to sentence Malloy to death had they been able to consider all of the available mitigating evidence. Essentially, the court geld that Malloy had had ineffective assistance of counsel during the penalty phase.
