Bill Signing in Maryland

Yesterday Maryland's governor signed the new law that will significantly restrict the imposition of the death penalty. Among those standing with him during the signing was MVFHR Board Chair VIcki Schieber, who had served on the Maryland Commission on Capital Punishment.

Yesterday was also the 11th anniversary of the murder of Vicki's daughter, Shannon Schieber.

Coverage of the governor's signing of this and other bills is here in the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post.
