Death penalty news and notes

I noticed this morning a few interesting death penalty items in the papers:

  • This article discusses arguments made by a death row inmate to Maryland's highest court based on "a study that found geographic and racial disparities in the application of the state's death penalty statute."

  • This editorial from Indiana, following up the recent commutation of the death sentence of a mentally ill killer (detailed here), discusses mental illness and the death penalty.
