story tonight.... hundreds of inmates on california's death row are getting a reprieve. governor gavin newsom signed a moratorium on executions across the state. that means the more than 700- inmates on the nation's largest death row will have their death sentences put on hold. nobody has been executed in the state since 2006. but this executive order is a game changer... at least during the newsom administration. it puts in place an executive moratorium on the death penalty in the form of a reprieve... for all individuals sentenced to death in california. - it withdrawals california's lethal injection protocol - it immediately closes the execution chamber at san quentin. - it clearly states the directive does not allow for the release of any individual from prison or otherwise alter any current conviction or sentence. today governor gavin newsom explained his reasoning.
billion dollars... 5-billion dollars since we reinstated the death penalty in this state. what have we gotten for that?">(vicki)for that?"> (vicki) and the work on closing the execution chamber at san quentin started immediately... this is video as crews removed the equipment today. (grant) president trump responded on twitter, writing: "defying voters, the governor of california will halt all death penalty executions of 737 stone cold killers. friends and families of the always forgotten victims are not thrilled and neither am i!" (grant) senator kamala harris also releasing a statement which reads in part: "i applaud governor newsom for his decision to place a moratorium on the death penalty. as a career law enforcement official, i have opposed the death penalty because it is immoral, discriminatory, ineffective,
and a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars." (vicki) taking a look now at some of the infamous inmates currently on death row at san quentin. scott peterson was convicted in the death of his wife laci and their unborn son. lonni franklin --- is a convicted serial killer. vincent brothers --- a former high school principal convicted of killing his three children and mother-in-law. and richard allen davis --- has been on death row since 19-96 for the kidnap and murder of 12- year-old polly klaas from petaluma.

believe governor gavin newsom would prevent their friend, laci peterson's murderer... husband scott peterson... from being exicuted. rene tomlinson, friend of laci peterson"no one allowed any kind of moratorium for those victims."stacey birdsong, friend of laci peterson"how is it humane how laci and conner died? do you think scott was humane about how he ended their lives."david wallace, brother of deputy dennis wallace"you're revictimizing these families."it's a move which also causes great frustration for david wallace. david wallace, brother of deputy dennis wallace "yesterday they were sentenced to death. today they're sentenced to life without."in november of 2016, wallace's brother, deputy dennis wallace, was shot and killed execution style allegedly by david machado.last month machado was found mentally competiant to stand trial. david wallace, brother of deputy dennis wallace"and those guys with life without, all of a sudden because life with the possiblity. because all it takes is a little bit of comfort, and then we move the line a little bit farther over."however gov. newsom's moratorium on the death penalty does have some family members of murder victims applauding.aba gayle, daughter murdered in 1980"why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?"aba gayle's dauther catherine was murdered in 1980... her killer now sits on death row.aba gayle, daughter murdered in 1980"don't kill in
my name, but far more important to me is don't kill in catherine's name because it would dishonor her spirit."but birdsong feels the governor's actions go directly against the wishes of the people of california.stacey birdsong, friend of laci peterson "because we did vote, prop 66 in 2016 that we want this reformed. we want the death penalty to work."(but with)"in the long run we're paying for him to stay on death row."(but with)"i don't want to hear about how great a life he has because laci doesn't have a life. connor doesn't have a life, he never had life." (vicki)(vicki) that was doug johnson reporting... (grant) laci peterson's family is also very upset with the governor's annoucement. (grant) a local district attorney is praising the governor's order. san francisco d-a "george gascon" says the death peantly is an unfair practice."people that are poor and people of color ore more likely to be sentenced to the death penalty when you look at the economic costs we are paying over 5 billion dollars since 1978 to maintain a broken system, the reality is we are better served to take the death ntpe the last execution in
california was 13 years ago and gascon points out.... homicide rates have been going down since then. he says -- that helps support the case that capital punishment no longer needed. (vicki) not many people agree with d-a gason... they believe the death peanlty is a deterrent for certain people, that should be left on the table. kron4's michelle kingston spoke to family members of other murder victims today to find out what they think of the governor's order. elisabeth semel, uc berkeley school of law"theres certain areas where the governors powers are very clear and when it comes to executions it is clear from the constitution that the governor has the power to issue reprieves and that he has said he will do" governor gavin newsom put a moratorium on executions in california on wednesday -- and called for the immediate closure of the execution chamber at san quentin.and despite the opinions people may have on the decision -- uc berkeley law professor elisabeth semel says he has the constitutional power to grant reprieves.steve wagstaffe, san mateo county district attorney"this decision by the governor flies in the face of what the voters
have done. i guess hes decided his personal views outweight that of the public."marc klaas, father of murder victim "once i was able to process what he had said, i died a little bit."marc klaas -- the father of a murder victim -- is disappointed by the governor's decision.marc klaas, father of murder victim "we have to remember that the individuals on death row are responsible for the deaths of more than 1000 police officers, babies, children, women, that these are the spree killers .. that these are the serial killers."but not all families of murder victims disagree with the order.judy kerr, sister of murder victim"he was a very sweet soul. he didn't hold malice toward people."judy kerr's brother bob was killed in 2003. they never found the person responsible for his death -- and the case is now cold. she is one of many survivors of murder victims against the deathe penalty. judy kerr, sister of murder victim"it doesnt serve the needs of victims families. it doesnt serve my needs as a survivor of a homicide victim. im just glad that governor newsom has had the courage to go ahead and take this step." in berkeley, michelle kingston, kron 4 news

new color system: red, white, and blue. and it looks phenomenal."still, trump says he spoke with boeing and others amid the storm of concern over one of the company's newest jets and said boeing has to figure out what - if anything is wrong with them...trump: "and hopefully they'll very quickly come up with the answer, but until they do... the planes are grounded."

(vicki) the arrest an undocumented immigrant accused in the murder of a san jose woman has rekindled the debate over to what extent local law enforcement should cooperate with federal authorities. (grant) as kron four's rob fladeboe reports now, santa clara county says it's only following the law, despite criticism from other local officials. (suspect mug) carlos eduardo arevalo carranza, an undocumented immigrant with a long criminal history, was arrested in connection with the brutal murder of 59 year old bambi larson of san jose. police on tuesday revealed that carranza had previously been locked up and released from the santa clara county jail twice in recent months. but before he allegedly stalked and stabbed larson to death late last month, carranza had been ordered detained by ice nine times in an effort to stop him from offending again. but those requests were thwarted by local sanctuary policies mean to protect undocumented immigrants who are not
considered a threat to the public. echoing previous criticizm of the policy, san jose mayor sam liccardo in a statement said.. ".....the current policy of ignoring detainer requests undermines public safety and violates common sense..." the mayor called for restarting the conversation on the policy. sheriff laurie smith said... '...it has been my long standing position that we should notify ice of all undocumented immigrants who are serious or violent felons...i will advocate for changing the policy..." also in a statement, county supervisor dave corteze reminded critics of the policy that the courts have thus far ruled that the county cannot hold immigrant suspects for ice without a warrant or judicial order unless the individual is currently charged with a crime. corteze insisted that ice is indeed notified ofcustody releases in real time but that ice often shows up too late to take action.county council james williams clarified the policy. james williams/santa clara county council "...there has been a lot of confusion about the law and about what the county can and cannot do. federal courts for many years all across the country have ruled that holding people beyond their release time violates the 4th amendment of the u.s. constitution and the only way we can legally hold people is if we have a warrant..."unless the courts rule otherwise or there is a change in local policy, law enforcement will continue to be caught in the middle trying to make a distinction between providing protection to otherwise law-abiding undocumented residents and violent criminals like carlos carranza who is one again locked up here in county jail. in san jose, rob fladboe, kron 4 news.
