Connecticut has only carried out one execution in 51 years, in 2005. For all future cases the highest penalty will be life imprisonment without parole.

Remember that GOP-debate where Rick Perry got the biggest applause of the evening for having executed 230-something people? Good times.

IIRC, that was a big part of GWB's victory over Ann Richards (for Texas governor): He promised to make more executions happen.
