2 county executives urge execution halt

June 24, 2000

The executives of Montgomery and Prince George's counties have called on Gov. Parris N. Glendening for a moratorium on executions pending a study of the state's use of the death penalty.

Douglas M. Duncan of Montgomery and Wayne K. Curry of Prince George's both support the death penalty in certain circumstances but said questions about application must be addressed.

Glendening recently commuted a death penalty sentence for a convicted murderer, but has resisted calls for a moratorium.
