i'm kelly ring. >> i'm mark wilson. glad to have you with us. does florida have a death penalty or not, 400 people probably want to know the answer tonight, so do the victim's families as well. two judges have weighed in to say florida's death penalty no longer exists. based on a ruling. the legislature working on a solution but prosecutors who want to seek it are in limbo. what very more on the ruling. what does it mean for the other murder cases. this will set a trend. >> and another judge said nord has no death penalty. >> they have recognized what everyone else knew. we don't have a death penalty, the supreme court said the statute is unconstitutional.
prosecutors from seeking the death penalty involve as case with carlos rivas. he killed a homeless man after stealing his money. with a trial set to start in april and a death sentence looming over him, he was no doubt relieved to hear the judge say this. >> based on the first decision which conclude -- the hearst decision that it is unconstitutional, i find there exist nos stat statutory authority that the state is seek the death penalty or authority that the court can impose the death penalty and i grant the addition of death as a sentence. >> the coward did not strike down the death penalty. they said the decision only applies to the sentencing process in which the jury recommends life or death but the judge makes the final call. >> it is like being on the titantic and saying, you know
there is an iceberg, we don't have a statute and that we'll continue to seek it against someone without a statute and hope that beforehand it is fixed. that's crazy to me. >> it has not stopped prosecutors from seeking the death penalty. and they announced that marisol best will face death if convicted. that will be challenged by her attorneys soon. mark, if that defendant is convicted in the case he will face life in prison. by the way the state will appeal this. we will follow it. back to you. >> thank you very much. tallahassee now the legislate legislature is work ogg on a solution but getting everyone to agree is easier said than done. a committee rejected the proposal that would require juries to reach a unanimous decision before a death sentence can be imposed. and the version passed by the house committee requires nine of
the penalty. and what to do with the 400 killers on death row. public defenders want them commuted to life without parole. but the daughter of a victim who was murdered pleaded with lawmakers to make sure that they get what they deserve. listen. >> i ask to you focus on the victims of homicide who suffered and their families to ensure that justice is served and peace of mind is granted that the horrible individuals will never walk free. >> life without the possibility of parole is a very, very serious penalty. we need to stop looking at it like a loss because death was not achieved. >> all i can say is with certainty is that evil exists in our world. we must do everything we can to
>> now the governor says that he is keeping an eye on things. if the legislature can come up with a fix he will review it add sign it. this is because the u.s. supreme court said the death sentencing process is unconstitutional because it allows judges to go against the recommendations of the juries. developing from sainted pete, police say a man near a limo may hold the key to identify hog stole a chihuly artwork. he had a random conversation with the thief who was seen in the video there. and evan axelbank has more to explain more about the video and trying to find the person who built it. >> the man was approached by the suspect after he dropped off the piece of stolen art in front of the art center several nights ago. they spoke for ten seconds it is unclear why they spoke, what they spoke about and why the man turned around to have this encounter.
here it is. this is a couple of nights ago this is after the man dropped off the piece in front of the center. he was covering his face then but then uncovers it as he walks past the limo. it may have been picking up people. the man who dropped it off turns around and talks to the man who has blonde hair. they have the name of the suspect but see if the description that the limo matches what they have. why would he give pitt back 36 hours after it was stolen? >> some people want to take it and sell it. he realized i got this item. there is not muchky do with it or a change of heart and that art is important especially in our city. we want to know the district is huge. great for the city and brings population here, tourists, it is good for the economy. the person who took this will be brought to justice. >> police say they connected
