State prosecutor Victoria Wilson prepares before going before the New Mexico Supreme Court in Santa Fe, N.M. Thursday Sept. 1, 2011 to argue in favor of the jurors considering the death penalty against Michael Astorga who was convicted of killing in 2006 a Bernalillo County sheriff's deputy. The state's high court ruled Thursday that a jury can consider the death penalty against Astorga despite the state's 2009 repeal of capital punishment. (AP Photo/Russell Contreras) less
