New Hampshire's only death row inmate, Michael Addison, got a very long day in court Wednesday.
New Hampshire's highest court held what may be an unprecedented hearing - more than five hours - to review Addison's trial and his death sentence for the 2006 shooting of Manchester police officer Michael Briggs.
NHPR's Josh Rogers was at the hearing and he tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the day's events.
Iberdrola operates two other wind farms in the state. One in Lempster began operating in 2008, and was the first such project in New Hampshire, and one in Groton, pictured here from the banks of the Baker River in Rumney, is just coming online now.

This was the first of three meetings this week that Iberdrola has scheduled presenting a proposal to build 36 wind turbines a ridge between the towns of Grafton, Alexandria, and Danbury.
On Wednesday, the New Hampshire Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Michael Addison. Four years ago, a jury found Addison guilty of first degree murder in the 2006 shooting death of Manchester police officer Michael Briggs. The jury then sentenced Addison to death.
Addison’s lawyers have appealed to the state Supreme Court, and the court will hear a full day of arguments beginning at nine this morning.

Today , New Hampshire’s lame duck congressmen are back in Washington. Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta will join their Republican colleagues in negotiating with President Obama and the Senate to ward off the fiscal cliff.
That’s when the payroll tax cut and Bush-era tax cuts expire and sequestration hits--simultaneously--in January.
