After months of emotional debate, it was a tie vote in New Hampshire’s Senate today that will leave intact, for now, the state’s death penalty. But the Senate then voted to table the repeal bill, leaving open the possibility that it may be resurrected for another vote before the session ends.  The only man on death row in New Hampshire is Michael Addison, convicted of killing Manchester police Officer Michael Briggs in 2006.  This bill, however, would affect only those crimes that occur after Jan. 1, 2014.
