The presumed death of two missing Iowa girls has prompted a lawmaker to call for the reinstatement of the death penalty.
Iowa State Senator Kent Sorenson says he will introduce a bill in January.
He says the discovery of two bodies believed to be Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook has pushed the death penalty issue to the forefront.
Opponents say there's not enough support for capital punishment.
The state of Iowa abolished the death penalty in 1965.
