Kansas Attorney General, Vern Miller, of Topeka responds to Florida circuit court judge Dominick J. Salfi's request for information on capital punishment in Kansas. Jack N. Williams, Assistant Attorney General for Kansas, prepared the response. Salfi's letter and questionnaire are included. Miller's responses to specific questions are written in the margins of the questionnaire. The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Furman v. Georgia (1972) declared many state capital punishment laws unconstitutional, prompting many states, including Kansas, to reconsider their approach to the death penalty.
