Oregon Death Penalty
Attorney Harrison Latto argues in favor of convicted murder Gary Haugen's wish to be put to death despite the reprieve by Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber before the Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday 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.
