Kansas was the winner of a Supreme Court case last week.
Now, the families of Kansas' 8 death-row-inmates victims can breathe a sigh of relief. For months, the families have been waiting to see what would happen to those convicted in the deaths of their loved ones.
The inquiry as to whether Kansas' death penalty law was legal came after attorneys for Michael Lee Marsh II, who was sentenced to die for the June 1996 deaths of Marry Ane Pusch, 21, and her 19-month-old Marry Elizabeth, challenged the state's statute, saying it violated the Eighth Amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishment.
We believe that it was cruel and unusual that the victims of the state's death row inmates lost their lives at the hands of murderers.
We applaud the 5 justices for keeping the promises Kansas judges made to these victims' families.
