From Alabama, "Alabama convicted killer waits to be executed this month by nitrogen gas"

From California, "Where Los Angeles County district attorney candidates stand on the death penalty"

From Florida, "Overwhelming Percentage of Florida’s Hurst Resentencing Hearings End in Life Sentences"

From Indiana, "The death penalty: Inside Indiana’s complicated history with capital punishment"

From Mississippi, "State still wants execution dates set for 2 men on Mississippi's death row"

From Missouri, "Missouri bill seeks to make rape, child sex trafficking punishable by death"

From Nebraska, "Nebraska Senator introduces bill to make nitrogen asphyxiation a legal method of execution"

From Utah, "Utah Judge Clears the Way for Use of the Firing Squad"
