FILE - This undated inmate photo released by the Connecticut Department of Correction shows Eduardo Santiago, who was sentenced to lethal injection for the murder-for-hire killing of 45-year-old Joseph Niwinski in West Hartford in 2000.   Connecticut's Supreme Court will release a decision Thursday Aug. 13, 2015, in a case that could decide the fate of the 10 inmates currently on death row in the state. It comes in an appeal from Santiago, whose attorneys argue lawmakers improperly passed a death penalty repeal three years ago that only outlawed capital punishment for future crimes.
