    0

    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The past year has seen fewer executions and death sentences in the United States, where more than 3,100 inmates still linger on death row, a non-profit group reported on Thursday. Thirty-nine executions were carried out in nine states, down from 43 last year and only the second time in 19 years there have been fewer than 40 executions, the Death Penalty Information Center said. Eighty death sentences were handed down, two more than last year but still far below the peak of 315 seen in 1994 and 1996.
