[College Park, Md.] : [University of Maryland, College Park], 
Study commissioned by Governor Parris Glendening into possible racial and geographic discrepancies in Maryland's handling of the death penalty. Finds that defendants accused of killing white victims are significantly more likely to face the death penalty than those accused of killing non-whites, and that black offenders who kill whites are significantly more likely to face the death penalty than all other racial combinations. Also finds that prosecutors in different jurisdictions show considerable variation in the extent to which they seek the death penalty.
