State of Connecticut v. Daniel Webb

In State v. Webb, 238 Conn. 389 (1996) the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed the Daniel Webb's capital felony conviction and his death sentence. While Webb was pending on appeal, however, the Connecticut legislature amended General Statutes section 54-100 to change the method of execution from electrocution to lethal injection. The defendant asked the Court for an opportunity to mount a constitutional challenge to lethal injection as a method of execution. The Court acquiesced in this request and remanded the case to the trial court for a hearing limited to whether lethal injection violated the state constitution. The Court retained jurisdiction over the case pending the outcome of the hearing.
