    When and where was the first death sentence? I googled in web where quite a few pages says 18th century BC. But the pages did not look legitimate.

    Also what were the crimes during ancient civilizations for which death sentence was imposed?

    Were there any crimes that weren't?
    Suggest you start with:
    The code of Hammurabi

    The Code of Hammurabi probably just put into writing what was already in practice. You might have better luck considering when the death penalty was institutionalized or something more specific.
