"Conn. death penalty trial to resume," is the AP report, via the Danbury News Times.
A trial is scheduled to resume in the case of five Connecticut death row inmates who claim their prosecutions were fraught with racial and geographical biases.
The habeas corpus trial is set to continue Tuesday at Northern Correctional Institution in Somers, with a video feed for the public available at Rockville Superior Court. The trial has been held on and off for the past three months.
Five of the 11 men on the state's death row claim their death penalties were prosecuted in arbitrary and discriminatory ways based on their race and where their trials were heard. Prosecutors deny the claims.
Six men on death row are black, four are white and one is Hispanic.
