COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - As two South Carolina inmates are scheduled to die under the state’s recently revamped capital punishment statute, a group is seeking alternatives for the death penalty.

Members of the group South Carolinians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty held a press conference Wednesday at the South Carolina state capitol. They called for Governor McMaster and the South Carolina General Assembly to halt the scheduled executions and repeal capital punishment in South Carolina.
