It is better to make it painful for the offenders if they are stuck in prison for life without parole with no privileges for life. They need to know that there is a real price to pay without TV radio the internet or anything but bunk mate Bubba to keep them company.
To be effextib=ve we need to go back to, "You will be taken to a place of execution at sunrise where where you will be hanged by the neck until dead.
Then there mght be a reduction in murders.
There would also undoubtedly be a rise in the numbers of innocent people put to death, because their Constitutional right of due process was stripped from them.
