Capital news and notes

Today's papers have a number of interesting death penalty items this morning:

  • This article from California details that "nearly three decades after capital punishment was reinstated in California, the constitutionality of using pancuronium bromide is one of several active disputes that could force systemic changes."

  • This editorial from the Houston Chronicle contends that "efforts to determine whether a state has executed an innocent man reflect the country's growing unease with capital punishment."

  • This article details that "the U.S. Army has issued new regulations governing the death penalty, raising speculation that the military might be preparing for its first execution since 1961. "
