Gulf War veteran Louis Jones, Jr., admits he kidnapped, raped and killed a young soldier. He was sentenced to death for the crime in 1995. He says chemical exposure during the war caused organic brain damage, and he wants President Bush to grant him executive clemency. NPR's Scott Simon speaks with Jones' lawyer, Timothy Floyd.
