Martha Coakley Death Penalty?

Martha Coakley signed her name to a brief restricting death penalty appeals, while claiming to be against the death penalty.
That's a little confusing. What is Martha Coakley's position on the death penalty? I personally don't like Martha, I've never thought Martha Coakley would make a good Senator. But I read her biography and she is an interesting person.

Martha Coakley hasn't changed a bit since she prosecuted Louise Woodward.
