Ross Execution Postponed

Hartford, CT – Today was the day Connecticut was supposed to execute its first person in 45 years. Instead, serial killer Michael Ross is still alive and barring any intervention from the Supreme Court, his case will go through another round of legal battles. Despite little chance of passage, Av Harris reports that Connecticut lawmakers who support abolishing the death penalty are encouraged by the stay of execution.
