Death comes unexpectedly

I was thinking about the death penalty, and for me the argument breaks down to a very simple question: Do you believe everyone is capable of rehabilitation? By capable, I mean they are both mentally able to be rehabiliitated and interested in being rehabilitated. If you answer "no" then logically, the death penalty is a viable option to keeping someone incarcerated forever. If you answer "yes" then logically, the death penalty is the ultimate denial of the opportunity to change.
This comes up because of a discussion of evil generated by the case of the man who allegedly beat and stabbed his 8 year old daughter and her best friend to death over what is reported as a "minor disciplinary issue." I hate living in a world where parents do bad things to their children.
