Mr. Krone goes to Concord

Ray Krone of York County, who spent more than two years on Arizona's death row and 10 total years in prison for a murder he did not commit, has been one of abolition's great advocates since his release in 2002. Articulate, passionate, and likable, Ray has a way with an audience. On Tuesday, he was in Concord, NH, advocating for a bill that would abolish New Hampshire's death penalty, which hasn't been used since 1939.

The NH legislature passed an abolition bill a few years back, which was vetoed by the then-Governor. The current governor is also threatening a veto.
