Washington Death Penalty Moratorium
FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2008 file photo, he outside entrance to the execution chamber at the Washington State Penitentiary is shown with a guard tower in the background, in Walla Walla, Wash. Gov. Jay Inslee announced Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, that he is suspending the use of the death penalty in Washington state. Inslee's moratorium, which will be in place for as long as he is governor, means that if a death penalty case comes to his desk, he will issue a reprieve, which isn't a pardon and doesn't commute the sentences of those condemned to death.
