Oregon Death Penalty
FILE - In this Nov 22, 2011, file photo, Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber pauses while announcing in Salem, Ore., that the execution of convicted killer Gary Haugen will not go on as scheduled and no more executions will happen while he is in office. The Oregon Supreme Court will hear arguments Thursday, March 14, 2013, from lawyers for Haugen and Kitzhaber--a lower court sided with Haugen, who says Kitzhaber overstepped his authority when he issued a temporary reprieve two weeks before Haugen was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection.
