Death Penalty Vote Near

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A co-chairman of the Judiciary Committee says Connecticut lawmakers will likely be voting on the high-profile death penalty repeal bill during Wednesday’s Senate session.

Democratic Sen. Eric Coleman of Bloomfield says the bill will probably face proposals from opponents for amendments concerning living conditions for capital offenders and the early release credit program.

Coleman said Tuesday he is confident the repeal bill will pass the state’s House of Representatives but it will probably face more challenges in the Senate.

The proposed bill would abolish the death penalty for all future cases. It would not directly affect the sentences of current death row inmates.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has said he will support the prospective bill.
