Death penalty measure challenged by victims' rights group

SACRAMENTO

The Criminal Justice Legal Foundation filed the petition, saying the initiative violates a state law limiting propositions to a single subject.

If passed, the measure would abolish the death penalty and allocate the money saved to police agencies to help solve murder and rape cases.

Backers say the measure is solely about abolishing the death penalty.
