ABSTRACT
The article examines equipoise, collective rights and the future of the death penalty in the context of the Kansas Supreme Court case Kansas versus Marsh.

Marsh guilty of capital murder, first-degree murder and aggravated arson and burglary. It gives details of the argument raised by Marsh against the death penalty imposed on him.
