HARTFORD - The state Senate is expected to vote soon on a bill that would end the death penalty in the state.

The bill, in its current form, would apply only to future cases and would not grant clemency to those currently sitting on death row.

A similar bill passed the General Assembly in 2009, but then-Gov. M. Jodi Rell (R-Conn.) vetoed the legislation. Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) has said he would sign the legislation if passed.
