Posted: Wednesday, February 10, 2010

JUNEAU - House Speaker Mike Chenault has introduced a death penalty bill in the Alaska Legislature.

It would allow the attorney general to seek capital punishment in certain cases. The Republican from Nikiski told KTUU he doubts there are enough votes to pass the bill.

The death penalty was banned by the territorial Legislature.
