Oregon Death Penalty
Attorney Anna Joyce argues in favor of Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber's authority to prevent the execution of Gary Haugen during a hearing before the Oregon Supreme Court in Eugene, Ore. on Thursday, March 14, 2013. Kitzhaber, who opposes capital punishment, regretted letting two other inmates be put to death and said he won't allow it to happen again. Haugen argues that Kitzhaber exceeded his authority when he issued a temporary reprieve for the two-time murderer in 2011, delaying the execution until the governor leaves office.
