New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has vetoed a bill to repeal the death penalty, but the measure is expected to prevail in the Legislature, which passed it with veto-proof majorities this session.

Sununu, surrounded by law enforcement officers in a ceremony in Manchester on Friday, called the bill an injustice to slain police officer Michael Briggs, law enforcement, and victims of violent crimes.
