According to the judge, the death penalty is not a real deterrent, as a person is hanged to death in a few seconds. But the life imprisonment is, because a person is left in the jail to die every moment he spends there.

(Your logic is faulty-- the death penalty presumably deters other potential criminals, not the convicted one!)
