In 2014 roughly 14,000 murders were committed but only 35 executions took place. Any criminal who didn't think he would be caught would be untroubled by any sanction, in my point of view. Murderers expose themselves to far greater immediate risks, so the likelihood that a small chance of execution many years after committing the crime isn't going to influence their behavior. Their behavior is sometimes sociopathic deviant, thus they would act the same if the only penalty was to be life imprisonment.
