Senate To Take Up Death Penalty Repeal

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate is scheduled to take up a measure to repeal the death penalty.
 
The Senate is set to consider amendments to the bill on Friday.
 
A vote on the measure is not expected until next week.
 
Maryland has five men on death row. The state's last execution was in 2005.
 
Maryland's death penalty has been on hold since a 2006 court ruling found the state's lethal injection protocols weren't properly approved by a legislative committee.
