Capital Punishment in Arizona: This week, Arizona 360 has a series of discussions about the death penalty in Arizona. As a prosecutor for Pima County, Rick Unklesbay successfully prosecuted the most death row cases in Arizona. He discusses the book he recently authored, Arbitrary Death, which details how he prosecuted murder trials and what he considers to be the arbitrary nature of how capital punishment is applied. Arizona 360 also hears from Kathy Weir, whose brother Robert Curry was killed along with two others during an armed robbery at a Pizza Hut in Tucson in 1999. Weir discusses the emotional toll and challenges she endured during the lengthy trials of the killers. Reporter Mike Kiefer spent nearly 20 years covering the judicial system in Arizona. He discusses his experiences reporting on death row cases, and the current holding pattern on executions in the state. Mayoral Candidates: Arizona 360 is sitting down with the City of Tucson mayoral candidates who qualified for the ballot. This week, we hear from Democratic candidate and current city councilwoman Regina Romero.
