Critics Emerge Against Death Penalty Repeal

May 5th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports later this month, it will be exactly 30 years that Irvin and Rose Bronstein were murdered in their Pimlico home during a robbery.

The man convicted of that murder, John Booth-El, is one of the five men on Maryland's death row.

Over the last 30 years, the Bronsteins' daughter Phyllis Bricker has attended court hearings to make sure Booth-El's sentence is carried out, and she has made dozens of trips to Annapolis to make sure lawmakers keep Maryland's death penalty.

She says Governor Martin O'Malley, who signed the death penalty repeal bill this week, and the majority of the Maryland General Assembly has "disregarded the entire criminal justice system," when it comes to Booth-El's case.
