Conn. Holds Hearings On Abolishing the Death Penalty
The Connecticut Legislature held hearings yesterday on abolishing the death penalty.
Murder victims' relatives, a retired prison warden and even a former death row inmate were among dozens Monday who spent hours urging a state legislative committee to scrap Connecticut's death penalty.
Almost all the 75 speakers at the judiciary committee's hearing in Hartford backed a proposal to abolish the death penalty and make life in prison without release the state's worst punishment.
