No, this case is setting a precident that if you find your mentaly retarded dependant to be inconveniant to your life, you're allowed to kill them.
Just like with abortion. It's the new culture of death that America seems to be trying to adopt. If something's inconvenient, kill it.
The legal system in the US has multiple levels of courts. Every time they've been back in court, it has been with new evidence. That's old law, and
good law. Were that not permitted, I could be convicted of murder one day, then the next a person confesses, and their DNA matches DNA discovered at
the crime scene, but I am stuck in jail because you're not allowed to retry a case with new evidence.
Now, were I found innocent of murder and more evidence were discovered that proved I did it, they couldn't try me again.
