CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Press Release) - Wyoming Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty and the Wyoming Campaign to End the Death Penalty will be hosting a second online event featuring murder victims’ family members on Tuesday, February 16, at 6 p.m. (MT).

“Victims for Repeal: Part Two” will feature Christal Martin of Green River, Wyoming and Rev. Su DeBree of Helena, Montana. They will be sharing their heartbreaking stories of loss and why they oppose the death penalty.

Martin lost two family members to murder, first her mother, and then her husband 25 years later.

DeBree lost her first-born daughter to domestic violence 30 years ago.

“I prayed through deep despair, anger, and grief, and my faith was turned inside out,” DeBree said. “Obsession for vengeance would have destroyed my life as well as hers.”

Members of the news media will be able to ask Rev. DeBree and Ms. Martin questions after their presentations.
