VADUZ, Liechtenstein — Liechtenstein has finally abolished the death penality--a century after it held its last execution.
The measure was unanimously approved Wednesday by the country's 15-member Parliament.
Liechtenstein, located between Austria and Switzerland with a population of 26,000, last conducted an execution in 1875.
The only two death row inmates over the past decade were ultimately pardoned by the ruler, Prince Franz Josef II. One was a man who killed his wife and two children. The other shot and killed the principality's presiding judge.
