CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's Senate has voted to leave intact the state's centuries-old death penalty.
Lawmakers voted 12-12 Thursday and the tie means the measure will stay on the books.
The House last month voted in favor of repeal 225-104 and Gov. Maggie Hassan said she would sign the measure into law.
The repeal measure was drafted to keep the state's lone death row inmate eligible for execution. Michael Addison was convicted in 2008 of killing Manchester police officer Michael Briggs two years earlier. His case is in the appeals process.
The last time New Hampshire executed someone was 1939.
It was the closest the measure has come since 2000 when both houses passed a repeal of the death penalty but it was vetoed by then-Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat.
Here's how individual senators voted. A "yes" vote is in favor of repeal.
