Maryland delegates chose to cut loose late Monday night with just minutes remaining in their 90-day legislative session.
Condemned inmates in Maryland may become among the few in the nation allowed to choose their own clergy member not employed by the state to be in the execution chamber with them.
Corrections officials no longer saw the need of any restriction, as long as the commissioner approved the person after a background check and the choice didn't compromise security, Mr. Watson said.
Mr. Watson said that while a Jewish chaplain who worked for the state was available, Oken had requested the priest to be present.
