Jason Getsy - Ohio Death Row - Execution set for August 18, 2009

Victims: Ann Serafino

The Crime: Getsy was convicted in 1995 of aggravated murder in the slaying of Ann Serafino, 68, of Hubbard, and of the attempted murder of her son, Charles Serafino.

Prosecutors said John Santine offered Getsy and two others $5,000 to kill Charles Serafino, a business rival, and any witnesses because of a dispute over Serafino’s landscaping business. Ann Serafino was killed because she was at home when the gunmen attacked, authorities said.

Santine, whose trial was moved to Jefferson County after publicity over the Getsy trial, was convicted on an aggravated murder charge. Other co-defendants — Richard McNulty and Ben Hudach, who pleaded guilty — were sentenced to life in prison, a three-judge panel with the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals court noted in their decision that set the death penalty aside in 2006.

Only Getsy was found guilty of murder-for-hire and was sentenced to death.

Ohio executes triggerman in murder-for-hire scheme

Ohio has executed the triggerman in a 1995 murder-for-hire scheme that killed a 66-year-old woman and severely injured her son.

33-year-old Jason Getsy was pronounced dead at 10:29 a.m. Tuesday in the death chamber at the Southern Ohio Correctional Institution in Lucasville.

Getsy was sentenced to die for fatally shooting Ann Serafino in a crime that targeted her son, Charles Serafino, in a dispute over a lawn care business.

Charles Serafino was shot 7 times but survived and witnessed Getsy's execution Tuesday.

Getsy becomes the 4th condemned inmate to be put to death this year in Ohio and the 32nd overall since the state resumed capital punishment in 1999. The state has at least 1 execution scheduled for every month through next February.

Getsey becomes the 36th condemned inmate to be put to death this year in the USA and the 1172nd overall since the nation resumed executions on January 17, 1977.

Last Meal:
A rib-eye steak, medium rare with A-1 sauce; hot barbeque buffalo wings; onion rings with ketchup; fried mushrooms with marinara sauce; a chef salad with ranch dressing; pecan pie with vanilla ice cream; and to drink, Dr. Pepper and root beer.

Final Statement:
''To Chuck and Nancy Sarafino and your loved ones, for all the pain I have caused you, it is my earnest prayer God can grant you peace. I am sorry. It is a little word, I know, but it is true. For everyone else, God is so great that he gave his only son that I may be forgiven for all my sins. Even today, I can say how blessed I am the Holy Spirit dwells in me."
