(AURN) -- Maryland has become the first state south of the Mason-Dixon line to abolish the death penalty in more than half a century. Maryand's governor, Martin O'Malley, signed the measure into law Thursday. West Virginia got rid of capital punishment in 1965.
NAACP President Ben Jealous was among those on hand for the signing ceremony. The organization has been part of a multi-agency effort to abolish the death penalty in many states.
