Case Of The Week: Inmate Challenges Death Sentence In Light Of Repeal

, The Connecticut Law Tribune


This is not the first challenge of the death penalty repeal law to reach the state Supreme Court. Earlier this year, Eduardo Santiago also challenged it. Last year, Santiago was granted a new penalty phase hearing in his capital conviction for killing a West Hartford man in 2000. Santiago is challenging the need for another death penalty phase hearing in light of the fact that the state has repealed the death penalty for those convicted of murder after the law's passage. •
