Noted death penalty abolitionist seeks Oklahoma moratorium
January 27, 2015 20:39 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Noted author and death penalty abolitionist Sister Helen Prejean is urging Oklahomans to reconsider the death penalty while the Supreme Court decides whether the state's lethal injection method is constitutional.
The Roman Catholic nun and author of the book "Dead Man Walking" joined a group of death penalty opponents Monday calling on Oklahomans to consider joining the 18 states that have abolished it. The group also delivered more than 30,000 online petition signatures to Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin's office.
Prejean is a spiritual adviser to Oklahoma death row inmate Richard Glossip, who is scheduled to be executed Thursday for orchestrating the beating death of an Oklahoma City motel owner in 1997.
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to review Oklahoma's execution protocol, and the state has requested a stay.
