O’Malley calls for death penalty repeal
ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley will throw his support behind legislation to repeal the death penalty in Maryland this year, he announced at an event Tuesday while flanked by civil rights activists and legislators.
The governor said he plans to file legislation this week in the Maryland General Assembly and that he believes he has the support to repeal capital punishment after two earlier unsuccessful attempts.
