Death row moves

Maryland's death row inmates have been moved from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center (which used to be informally known as "Supermax") to the North Branch Correctional Institution near Cumberland. Executions (if we ever have one again) will still take place at the Metropolitan Transition Center.

The Sun has a few more details about the transfer.

Since I promised myself I'd keep all of my editorial comments in the comments section...

I'm not sure why the DOC felt the need to be so secretive about this. Capital punishment in MD is so slow that the majority of DR inmates probably have high blood pressure & prostate problems by this point in their life. Hell, I don't know why they bother segregating them from the general population.
