Asheville Citizen Times: WCU to host discussions on the death penalty, Nov. 8-9

“Western Carolina University’s Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice will host two public events in early November examining the death penalty.
The first is “Issues in the Death Penalty: Wrongful Convictions,” a presentation scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Grandroom of A.K. Hinds University Center on the WCU campus.
The program will feature Edward Chapman, who spent 14 years on North Carolina’s death row before his convictions on two murder charges were overturned in 2008, and Pam Laughon, a faculty member who found evidence to support his release.
A panel discussion titled “The Death Penalty Under Debate: Experts Weigh In” will be 2:30 p.m. Nov. 9, also in the Grandroom.
For more information, Cyndy Caravelis Hughes at 227-2165.”
