An article on the death penalty in Wednesday's edition...

May 20, 1994

An article on the death penalty in Wednesday's edition incorrectly reported the year of the Supreme Court's decision in Furman vs. Georgia, which held that the death penalty was being applied in an unconstitutional manner.

The decision was announced in 1972.

The Sun regrets the errors.
