    from the article linked above:

    He was believed to be the first defendant tried after voters approved a measure in 1978 to revive the death penalty. Murtishaw had been on California's death row at San Quentin State Prison since May 1, 1979.

    Since California reinstated the death penalty, 55 condemned inmates have died from natural causes, 19 have committed suicide, 13 were executed in-state, one was executed in Missouri and six died from other causes.
