Spiritually speaking, what was the first written penal code to proscribe capital punishment for mere property crimes?

Bonus question: Is there any religion without such a restriction in its principal moral code even today, where only the Law of the Land keeps a person charged with a simple property crime -- i.e., not involving any harm or threat of harm to life -- from being put to death?

    Christianity has been killing criminals for hundreds of years. Muslims simply cut off your right hand.
