Some death penalty news and notes from around the USA

I have noticed a number of notable recent new press pieces about death penalty issues, and I figured a round up was in order: 

From the AP, "MO Supreme Court continues death penalty trial despite positive COVID-19 cases"

From the Canton Repository, "Canton man's new mission: Eliminating Ohio's death penalty"

From CNN, "Biden vowed to end the death penalty. Activists are demanding action as he nears the 100-day mark"

From Nevada Public Radio, "Will Nevada Abolish The Death Penalty?"

From the Tennessean, "Tennessee legislature: Courts allowed to reconsider death sentences over intellectual disability appeal"
