Advocates Commemorate Anniversary of Capital Punishment

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-People commemorated around a tall tree while holding candles for a cause that is important to them.

It's the 19th year members of the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty gathered around a tree in remembrance of 1994 when the death penalty became a law in Kansas.

They sang songs and read off names of murder victims over a candle light ceremony.

Advocates say an alternative to the death penalty could be a life sentence without parole
