I find the best argument for capitol punishment to be Romans 13:4.

"For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil."

The sword wasn't for rehabilitatin, and wrath represents the ultimate punishment.
