RICHMOND — A bill to abolish the death penalty in Virginia won final approval in the state Senate on Monday and will be sent to Gov. Ralph Northam (D), who is expected to sign it.

A judge would have discretion to suspend part of that sentence — a sticking point for some Republicans, who pushed unsuccessfully to make life without parole a mandatory minimum.
