The Crime: On 1/11/94, Reynolds murdered his 67-year-old neighbor, Loretta Foster, in her Akron home. Reynolds had recently painted Ms. Foster's basement. Reynolds tied Ms. Foster up, attempted to rape her, strangled her and beat her with a tent pole. Reynolds later told his friends about the murder and took them to Ms. Foster's house to see her body. While awaiting trial, Reynolds also told an inmate about the murder.

LUCASVILLE, Ohio — The death sentence of inmate Lawrence Reynolds was carried out at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility here this morning via intravenous lethal injection.

Reynolds’ time of death was 10:27 a.m. His sentence was imposed on June 9, 1994 by the Summit County Common Pleas Court for the murder of an elderly Cuyahoga Falls neighbor.

Reynolds had tried to commit suicide while at the Ohio State Penitentiary facility in Youngstown a few days ago.

Last Meal: Steak, pork chops, jumbo fried shrimp, fried cheese sticks, french fries, onion rings, fried mushrooms, black cherries, black walnuts and Dr Pepper.

Final Statement:
"I came in like a lion and go out like a lamb. Erin and Emma will forever and always hold the heart of the lion. To my brothers, I hope they will never have to walk these 15 steps I walk today. I have tried to bring attention to the futility and flagrantly flawed system we have today. Stop the maddness."

 Court halts Ohio execution, cites injection flaws
A federal appeals court has halted the execution of a man who strangled his 67-year-old neighbor, citing last month's failed attempt to execute another inmate in Ohio.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 Monday to delay the execution of 43-year-old Lawrence Reynolds until a federal judge has time to hear arguments over problems with the Sept. 15 injection process. Reynolds had been scheduled to die Thursday.

Gov. Ted Strickland stopped the planned execution of Romell Broom after executioners tried for two hours to find a usable vein.

Broom's execution also is on hold while his attorneys prepare for a federal court hearing Nov. 30. They argue that an unprecedented second execution attempt on Broom violates a constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
