New Jersey to become first state in four decades to abolish death penalty | Special reports | Guardian Unlimited
For the first time in more than 40 years a US state is to abolish the death penalty.

A 44-36 vote in the New Jersey legislature to abolish executions in the state yesterday followed approval for the measure in the state senate on Monday.

The bill now goes to the desk of New Jersey governor, Jon Corzine, a Democrat who has spoken in favour of abolishing the death penalty. The measure will be replaced with a sentence of life without parole.
