|NJ Closing Death Row|
New Jersey's Corrections Department plans to move some of its most notorious and dangerous inmates.
Department spokeswoman Deirdre Fedkenheuer said yesterday the state would close its former death row - now known as the special sentencing unit - at New Jersey State Prison in Trenton and reassign its inmates.
The death penalty was abolished in New Jersey in 2007.
The gang unit at Northern State Prison in Newark also is to be closed and its inmates reassigned.
