From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ralph Hudson (died 22 January 1963) was the last person to be executed by New Jersey.

A native of Atlantic City, Hudson was tried and convicted of stabbing his estranged wife Myrtle Hudson to death. He was executed by electric chair in the state prison in Trenton. Although other prisoners were sentenced to death by New Jersey after Hudson,[1] no prisoner has been executed since Hudson.

The New Jersey Legislature voted to abolish the death penalty in 2007, and the measure was signed into law by Governor Jon S. Corzine.[2]
