Harford Co. Senator To Introduce Legislation To Reinstate Death Penalty In Md.
BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- A state senator from the county where three granite business employees were shot and killed last week, allegedly by a coworker, wants to reinstate the death penalty in Maryland.
Senator Robert G. Cassilly, a Republican of Harford County, says he wants lethal injection to be a possible punishment for certain crimes -- including the murder of two or more people as part of a single incident, serial murders, murders of law enforcement officials, the murder of a witness to certain kinds of crimes, a murder that occurs during a rape or sex offense and murder during the commission of a hate crime.
Cassilly says he wants the method of execution to be lethal injection with a mixture of heroin and fentanyl.
