New Legislation Could Kill Death Penalty In Oregon

(Salem, OR)  --  A new proposal in the State Capitol may effectively end the death penalty in Oregon.  Under House Bill 3268, the charge of aggravated murder would be limited to crimes where two people or more are killed in a terror attack.  Inmates convicted of aggravated murder under the current law would instead be given a life sentence and a new conviction of first-degree murder.  A moratorium on the death penalty has been in place in Oregon since 2011.  Thirty people currently sit on death row.
