Death Penalty Bill March Plans May Bring Big Debate RALEIGH (UPI) - Considerable debate may take place today before the House takes final action on a bill which would change capital punishment procedures in North Carolina. Rep. Ike Andrews, D-Chatham, indicated last week he would carefully study the bill introduced by Rep. James Ramsey, D-Person, which would repeal the provisions whereby a defendant can plead guilty to first degree murder, rape, burglary and arson. Ramsey said his bill was prompted by federal court rulings which said allowing a defendant to plead guilty to these crimes to save their lives was coercive. Ramsey's bill would eliminate the provision to allow a person to plead guilty to save his life, and it would raise the maximum penalties for the second degree crimes to life imprisonment. Andrews questioned the effect of the law during the debate GUITAR LESSONS REGISTER NOW Lesson Every Sat. The Students Will Meet At Grace Park Rec. Center 9:00 A.M.
