New Hampshire Governor John Lynch and the State's Executive Council have denied a pardon hearing for Shayne Pitts, who was convicted in 1991 of killing his pregnant girlfriend. At the time of the murder, Pitts was 18 and on LSD. He received a 40 years-to-life sentence. The victim's mother supported the request, but it was opposed by the State's attorney general, the sentencing judge and state police. See story here.
