In December 1992, the Governor created the Gov-
ernor's Commission on the Death Penalty (Execu-
tive Order 01.01.1992.28). The Commission
charge was to review comprehensively: 1) the
State's death penalty and criminal appeals statutes,
the applicable Maryland Rules, and the postconvic-
tion process to determine if the process was fair and
expeditious; 2) guidelines used by State's Attorneys
in determining whether or not to seek the death
penalty in murder cases; 3) pattern jury instructions
given by judges to juries hearing evidence in capital
murder cases; and 4) the federal appellate process,
including review by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Commission was to study whether certain pro-
cedures required by law might be eliminated to
reduce the cost and time of appeals. In addition, the
Commission was to seek ways for State and federal
courts to cooperate in reviewing death sentences.
The Report of the Governor's Commission on the Death
Penalty: An Analysis of Capital Punishment in Mary-
land, 1978 to 1993, was submitted by the Commis-
sion to the Governor in November 1993.
