What happened to the cop killer on New Hampsire's death row? I was sure NH had someone sentenced to death.

Michael "Stix" Kiser Addison is currently the only inamte in New Hampshire presently under a sentence of death. He was convicted of capital murder for shooting an on-duty police officer on October 16, 2006. He was convicted and sentenced in December of 2008. This means he still has plenty of avenues of appeals left to him, so it will likely be at least 10-15 more years before he even comes close to an execution date. New Hampshire has no working execution chamber. Since 1868, executions have taken place at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord. Hanging is the method of execution historically used in the state. Lethal Injection is currently the primary legal form of execution, though hanging can be utilized if lethal injection is determined to be "impractical to carry out the punishment of death." Capital murder is the only crime for which the death penalty can be imposed in the state. Since 1734, twenty-four people have been executed, with the last execution carried out in 1939.
