In 1983, Denise Stockin’s trial was held in the town of Stuart, Virginia. He was charged for murdering Kenny Arnder for money, he accepted from Tommy McBride. Mc Bride was supposedly angry at Arnder for tricking him on a drug deal and wanted Arnder dead to prove a message to everyone else. There was significant evidence to prove that Stockin killed Arnder. Moreover, Stockin confessed to killing another man in 1979.The jury found the defendant guilty and sentenced him to death because he was found to be a future danger to society. However, the important question in this case is if sentencing Denise Stockin to death for homicide is ethical? In order to answer this question we have to ask ourselves if capital punishment is ethical.
