Notable death penalty headlines

As is often the case, this weekend brought some interesting death penalty stories in the newspapers:

  • From California here, "Death penalty moratorium supporters try again to block executions"

  • From Illinois here, "Wrongfully convicted man calls death penalty 'barbaric'"

  • From Washington here, "Foes of death penalty sense shifting momentum despite recent court loss"

UPDATE: Here are some more notable capital headlines from Monday morning:

  • From Albama here, "Jeffco death sentences highest since '76"

  • From North Carolina here, "Capital punishment opponents gain partial victory"

  • From Washington here, "The proper role of state's death penalty"
