Kasich: No Mercy for Young Girl's Killer
COLUMBUS (AP) -- Ohio's governor has refused to spare the condemned killer of a 3-year-old girl ahead of a scheduled execution under the state's untried lethal injection system.
Gov. John Kasich without comment on Thursday denied the request for mercy by Ronald Phillips. He is sentenced to die for the 1993 rape and murder of his girlfriend's daughter.
A federal judge earlier Thursday also declined to block the execution.
The 40-year-old Phillips is set to die Nov. 14 by lethal injection with a drug combination never used before in the U.S.
Attorneys for Phillips argued he was sexually, physically and verbally abused as a child.
The state said Phillips long denied being abused and raised the issue only as his execution was imminent.
The Ohio Parole Board recommended against mercy.
Judge Won't Stop Condemned Killer's Execution
COLUMBUS (AP) -- A federal judge has declined to block a condemned Ohio child killer's upcoming execution at the request of lawyers suing over the state's updated process for carrying out capital punishment.
The Thursday decision by Columbus judge Gregory Frost upholds the Nov. 14 execution of Ronald Phillips despite questions about the state's new option of using either of two untried lethal injection methods.
One method is a non-federally-regulated dose of pentobarbital, while the other is a first-ever combination of a sedative and painkiller.
Phillips' attorneys are also challenging a change in the execution policy that allows the prisons director to delegate certain responsibilities of the process to other individuals.
The 40-year-old Phillips was sentenced to die for raping and killing his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter in Akron in 1993.
