FILE - In this July 3, 2014 file photo, former Illinois Gov. George Ryan speaks at his home in Kankakee, Ill. The trial of an ex-University of Illinois grad charged with killing a Chinese scholar is the first federal death-penalty trial in Illinois since it abolished the death penalty and some activists aren't happy about it. Former Gov. George Ryan, who took the first step toward abolishing the state's death penalty by placing a moratorium on executions in Illinois in 2000, a year after the state's last execution, said the federal decision to hold a death penalty trial there subverted the will of the majority of the residents. The trial in which openings are set for Wednesday, June 12, highlights the rarity of such cases. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
