TheColorado Senate has voted 18-17 to defeat a measure that would have repealed the death penalty and used the savings from its elimination to fund cold case investigations.
Four democrats sided with republicans wednesday to shoot down
the measure.
The bill had faced tough opposition since it was introduced.
It passed in the house by a single vote last month.
