Kansas Death Penalty Foe to Bike Ride For Repeal

KSAL StaffJune 17, 2013
Bill Lucero, whose father was murdered 40 years ago, has been a volunteer for several years with the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty.

A longtime opponent of the Kansas death penalty plans to bicycle 100 miles through northeast Kansas to push legislators to repeal the law.

Bill Lucero will attempt to make the ride Tuesday around Topeka and Shawnee County. He is expected to be joined by other death penalty opponents and members of a local bicycling club.

Lucero, whose father was murdered 40 years ago, has been a volunteer for several years with the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty.

Kansas reinstated the death penalty in 1994. No one has been executed under the law, which would take place at the Lansing Correctional Facility by lethal injection.

The last execution in Kansas was in June 1965 by hanging.
