Connecticut Abolishes Death Penalty, Bans Further Executions

State's Supreme Court ruled that death penalty 'no longer comports with contemporary standards of decency'

Connecticut's Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the state's ban on cruel and unusual punishment prohibits the planned executions of 11 men on death row, thereby abolishing all capital punishment in the state.
The 4-3 decision came three years after the state passed a law that repealed the death penalty but did not spare those already sentenced to die.
