JACKSON,MS (WCBI) – A bill expanding Mississippi’s capital punishment law is heading to the Senate.
The State House today okayed a measure that would call for the death penalty for people convicted of killing a broader range of public servants.
The bill protects first responders, ambulance workers, and paramedics.
The House version was expanded to also include uniformed security guards and utility workers.
The Senate must now pass the bill before it becomes law.
