Today the Kansas Supreme Court released State v. Michael Lee Marsh, II, in which it overrules the first post-Furman capital decision in Kansas, State v. Kleypas, as to the constitutionality of the capital sentencing scheme.
I am still digesting the opinion, but on first impression it appears that until the legislature fixes KSA 21-4624, there is no death penalty in Kansas.
