Washington Death Penalty Moratorium
FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2010 file photo, Shar Lichty holds a sign that reads "Just say 'no' to state killing," as she stands during a gathering of protestors outside the Washington State Penitentiary, in Walla Walla, Wash. during the execution of Cal Coburn Brown for a 1991 murder. Gov. Jay Inslee announced Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, that he is suspending the use of the death penalty in Washington state, but the moratorium does not commute the sentences of people currently condemned to death.
