CWN Editor's Note: “There is no doubt the state has the responsibility to administer just punishment,” the bishops stated. “However, given our modern prison system, the execution ... is not necessary to fulfill justice and, for that reason, would undermine respect for human life. We continue to offer our sincerest prayers for all victims.” The prisoner was sentenced to death 38 years ago for two murders he committed in 1979.
