Connecticut Legislature Votes to Repeal Death Penalty

April 12, 2012, 12:35 pm | Posted by Nick Sementelli

Great news from the Nutmeg State:

After more than nine hours of debate, the Connecticut House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to repeal the state’s death penalty, following a similar vote in the State Senate last week. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat, has said he will sign the bill, which would make Connecticut the 17th state — the 5th in five years — to abolish capital punishment for future cases.
