A bill to kill the death penalty in New Hampshire brought out a crowd of close to 200 people who overwhelmingly spoke in support of the measure.
House Bill 455-FN would repeal the state’s capital punishment law, which allows for the death penalty for first-degree murder in certain circumstances such as when a police officer is slain.
Sponsor Rep. Renny Cushing, D-Hampton, whose father was murdered in Hampton, said attempts to abolish the death penalty have been brought before the general court for 185 years.
