Louisiana Governor Jindal rejects bishops' plea to halt execution
Catholic World News - February 07, 2013
Louisana Governor Bobby Jindal has declined a request from the state’s Catholic bishops to stop the execution of a convicted murderer on Ash Wednesday.
Christopher Sepulvado, who was convicted in 1993 for the brutal killing of a 6-year-old boy, is scheduled to die by lethal injection on February 13. The Catholic bishops had urged Jindal, who is Catholic, to halt the execution, noting that the date coincides with the beginning of Lent.
