Mental retardation defined.
As used in §§ 23A-27A-26.1 to 23A-27A-26.7,
inclusive, mental retardation means significant subaverage general intellectual functioning existing
concurrently with substantial related deficits in applicable adaptive skill areas. An intelligence
quotient exceeding seventy on a reliable standardized measure of intelligence is presumptive
evidence that the defendant does not have significant subaverage general intellectual functioning.
