A Delaware Supreme Court decision finds former death row inmate Isaiah McCoy back in solitary confinement at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution.

The high court ruled that a lower court judge had erred when he ordered prison officials to move him out of solitary confinement.

His attorney had argued that the 5 years in solitary confinement had affected his mental state and was hindering his participation in preparing for his upcoming retrial.
