After 11 hours of impassioned debate, the Connecticut Senate voted 20-16 to repeal the state’s death penalty early Thursday morning. The bill will now go before the House of Representatives, which is expected to pass it, and then to the desk of Governor Dannel Malloy, who has promised to sign it into law.
This has been a long battle for abolitionists in Connecticut. In 2009, state lawmakers in both houses tried to pass a similar bill, but were ultimately blocked by then Governor Jodi Rell. The legislation was halted again last year when two Democratic legislators changed their minds after speaking with Dr. William Petit, an outspoken death penalty supporter and the only survivor of a 2007 triple murder that took the lives of his wife and two daughters. The two defendants in that case have since been sentenced to death row, and senators who were influenced by the case were able to now support repeal. The bill would abolish the death penalty for all future cases and does not directly affect sentences of current death row inmates. There are currently 11 inmates on death row in Connecticut, and there has only been one execution in the state in 51 years.
TADP congratulates our colleagues in Connecticut who have worked so hard to make repeal a reality. If the legislation moves forward as expected, Connecticut would become the fifth state in five years to abandon this costly, unfair, and broken system.
