Kasich unlikely to act on condemned man's 2nd clemency request

::) ::) ::) Ya Think?  ::) ::) ::) ::)

It appears unlikely Gov. John Kasich will approve, or even consider, a new clemency request filed by a condemned killer who wants to donate a kidney to his ailing mother.

Ronald Phillips has already had his execution postponed twice by Kasich, once last fall and again this year. He recently asked to further delay his execution until 2016 so his mother, Donna Phillips, can lose enough weight to receive a kidney transplant from him.

Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols was asked if the governor will consider Phillips' new clemency request.

"Ronald Phillips is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 18," Nichols responded. He declined further comment.  8)

Donna Phillips has end-stage renal disease, weighs more than 300 pounds, has lost a foot to diabetes, and has used a wheelchair for about a decade. She is seeing doctors about possible bariatric surgery so she can shed enough pounds to be eligible for the transplant. Medicare would cover both operations, the lawyers say. She made a personal plea to delay the execution in a 3-page letter to Kasich.

Prison officials informed Ronald Phillips earlier this year that his transplant request would not be permitted because he had not acted in the 7-month window allowed by Kasich.

In 1993, Phillips raped, beat and killed the 3-year-old daughter of his girlfriend at the time.

Ohio executions will resume next February with Akron killer Ronald Phillips


By Jeremy Pelzer

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The state of Ohio will resume executions in February, almost a month after a court-imposed death-penalty moratorium expires, the state's prisons agency announced Friday.

Summit County killer Ronald Phillips is set to die by lethal injection on Feb. 11, 2015, according to the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. Gov. John Kasich approved the revised execution schedule on Friday for Phillips and 10 other death-row inmates.

Phillips' execution will be Ohio's first since convicted murderer Dennis McGuire was put to death in January.

Phillips, who was sentenced to death for the 1993 rape and beating death of a 3-year-old girl, was originally scheduled to die on Sept. 18.

But last month, a federal judge ordered a moratorium on executions until Jan. 15, 2015, to allow more time for the state to implement changes to the new lethal injection procedure.

A state review concluded that McGuire suffered no pain during his execution, but officials said they will increase the dosage of the drugs for future executions.

Ohio's new execution protocol calls for 50 mg each of midazolam and hydromorphone, the same dosage of the drugs employed in a nearly two-hour-long execution in Arizona last July.

I don't know why they don't pump them full of midazolam like they do in Florida...are they worried about the cost?  8)

Cost aside, they should bump the dosage up to 500 mg. If the intended result is "Legal Execution"of the inmate, then the maximum dosage should be used,besides, what are they worried about, killing him perhaps???

Prosecutor: chances of February execution 'nil'

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- As Ohio lawmakers rush to pass a bill supporters say is needed to restart executions in the state, a prosecutor says the chances of the next scheduled execution happening are "nil."

The legislation up for a final Senate vote Thursday shields the names of companies that provide lethal injection drugs to Ohio, a provision that supporters say is necessary to obtain supplies of the drugs.

Lawmakers want the measure in place at least a month before the Feb. 11 execution of Ron Phillips, sentenced to die for raping and killing his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter in Akron in 1993. Any changes to the state execution policies must be filed a month before executions.

The chance of "an execution going forward on February 11, 2015 is nil," Richard Kasay, assistant Summit County prosecutor, said in a Dec. 1 court filing.

Kasay wants more time to respond to arguments that lawyers filed last month to overturn Phillips' death sentence, a filing he called "voluminous."

Phillips' lawyers say the doctor who testified about Phillips' rape of the 3-year-old girl gave biased testimony because he was trying to open a private autopsy business he thought needed the county prosecutor's permission.

The doctor's testimony about the rape is key to Phillips' death sentence, since the rape was the factor that elevated the slaying to a capital punishment case.

The anonymity for companies was requested by lawmakers after prosecutors said executions wouldn't happen in Ohio without such protection. It's aimed at so-called compounding pharmacies that mix doses of specialty drugs.

On Wednesday, lawmakers removed a measure from the bill that doctors and drugmakers warned could have led to shortages of a key drug and set anesthesiology back 20 years.

At issue was a requirement that would have prevented drugmakers from restricting the distribution of drugs that could be used in executions.

Federal judge rejects death-row inmates' challenge to Ohio's execution secrecy rules


A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit by four death-row inmates challenging the constitutionality of Ohio's new execution secrecy rules.

The suit argued that the new law, which shields the identities of most participants in Ohio's execution process, violates the condemned inmates' rights to free speech and due process.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Frost dismissed the case on Tuesday, agreeing with the state's arguments that the rules would not infringe on free speech and the plaintiffs' case is "based on conjectural or hypothetical" injuries.

"H.B. 663 does not suppress speech or the ability to oppose the death penalty," Frost wrote in his opinion.

"Rather," Frost stated, "the statutory scheme simply cuts off Ohio and its employees as a source of specific information for both proponents and opponents of the death penalty.

Under the new law, House Bill 663, Ohio must keep secret the names of people involved with executions, other than top officials. The law also protects the identity of small-scale drug manufacturers called compounding pharmacies if they make lethal-injection drugs for the state.

Proponents of the rules, signed into law by Gov. John Kasich in December, say they are needed to protect individuals involved with Ohio executions from harassment and potential harm.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of death-row inmates Ronald Phillips, Raymond Tibbetts, Robert Van Hook and Grady Brinkley. The first three are scheduled to be executed next year; Brinkley's execution date has not yet been set.

I would trade off 100 other executions to see this maggot get juiced.

Ohio, facing January execution date, has yet to find supply of lethal-injection drugs


 By Alan Johnson The Columbus Dispatch

 Ohio officials face a problem: The state has more than two dozen convicted killers scheduled to die over the next three years but no means to execute them.

Just over six months before the first scheduled execution since 2014 -- Ronald Phillips of Summit County on Jan. 12, 2017 -- the state, despite exhaustive efforts, has not secured a supply of lethal-injection drugs for even one execution.

 The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction is looking for suppliers, spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said.

 "DRC continues to seek all legal means to obtain the drugs necessary to carry out court-ordered executions," she said.

 Prison officials have tried several means to buy drugs, including from overseas sources (specifically India) and from Ohio "compounding pharmacies," which mix drugs to customer specifications. Neither panned out.

 The biggest hurdle in obtaining a drug supply is that most major manufacturers have either stopped making drugs used for lethal injection or refuse to sell them to states for use in executions. The problem affects all states with the death penalty.

 Meanwhile, a legislative committee established in 2015 to look at both the rights of murder victims' families and alternative means "by which a court-ordered sentence of death is performed in Ohio, consistent with judicial precedent," has discussed victims' rights but not broached the subject of execution alternatives.

 Sen. Bill Coley, R-West Chester, chairman of the Joint Committee on Victims Services, did not return a call seeking comment. However, Sen. Bill Seitz, R-Cincinnati, has a lot to say about alternatives if drugs are unavailable.

 "If it becomes an impossibility to get the lethal-injection-drug mix that we need, then we should look to other forms of capital punishment that have been blessed by the U.S. Supreme Court as not violating the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment," Seitz said.

 The methods include a firing squad, the electric chair and hanging. However, any of those would require changing state law, which now allows only lethal injection. Ohio's electric chair, known as Old Sparky, was officially was put out of business on Nov. 22, 2001, when Gov. Bob Taft signed a law banning its use. The chair was removed from the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility near Lucasville in 2002 and is now periodically displayed by the Ohio History Connection.

 In the meantime, Seitz urged his legislative colleagues to enact pending legislation to "restrict the application of capital punishment to the most-severe cases." He cited a bill that would outlaw the execution of people who are "seriously mentally ill."

 Kevin Werner, executive director of Ohioans to Stop Executions, said it is a "fool's errand" for the state to look at other methods.

 "No matter what they change it to, it's going to lead to more litigation," Werner said. "I don't think Ohioans have the stomach for some of these methods."

Parole board rejects mercy for Ohio killer of 3-year-old

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's prison parole board on Friday rejected mercy for a man set to die in January for the 1993 rape and killing of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

 Ronald Phillips, 43, is the first death row inmate scheduled for execution next year under a new process for putting condemned prisoners to death.

 Gov. John Kasich has the final say. The governor rejected Phillips' previous clemency request in 2013.

 The board voted 10-2 against recommending mercy, turning down arguments that Phillips was the product of a horrific upbringing and that his trial was marked by legal mistakes and missteps.

 "Phillips' crime involved the killing of a vulnerable three-year-old victim, an abuse of trust, and extensive victimization, therefore making it among the worst of the worst capital crimes," the board said.

 The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction plans to execute Phillips and two other inmates with a three-drug combination that's similar to a method it used several years ago.

 Phillips' attorneys asked the board to spare the inmate, calling the case tragic but arguing that Phillips is not among the worst of the worst offenders.

 "Evidence of Phillips's background, history, dysfunctional upbringing, and his reformed character demonstrate that he should not be executed for the murder of Sheila Marie Evans," attorneys Tim Sweeney and Lisa Lagos wrote in a Nov. 25 filing.

 Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh says Phillips refuses to accept responsibility and it's time for justice to be served.

 She also called Phillips' 2013 request for an execution delay to allow him to donate organs to family members "bogus."

Kasich Sets New Execution Schedule In Response To Federal Court Order

February 10, 2017

COLUMBUS - Today Governor John R. Kasich issued a revised schedule for eight upcoming executions. This revised schedule is in response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit's pending review of a challenge to Ohio's execution procedures brought by death row inmates. The Court is not expected to issue its ruling in the case before the next scheduled execution on February 15.  The February 15 execution would be that of Ronald Phillips who was sentenced to death in 1993 for the rape and murder of his girlfriend's three-year-old daughter, Sheila Marie Evans.

On January 26, a magistrate for the United States District Court of the Southern District of Ohio stayed the first three scheduled executions in response to the challenge filed by Ohio death row inmates. While Ohio is confident its appeal will ultimately be successful given the United State Supreme Court decision in Glossip v. Gross, the appellate court's scheduling will not allow the matter to be resolved in time to allow the state to move forward with its current execution dates. Accordingly, these delays are necessary to allow the judicial process to come to a full resolution, and ensure that the state can move forward with the executions.

The eight inmates who currently have executions scheduled for 2017 have been rescheduled as follows:

The execution of Ronald Phillips has been moved from February 15, 2017 to May 10, 2017.

◾The execution of Gary Otte has been moved from March 15, 2017 to June, 13, 2017. Otte was convicted in Cuyahoga County for the 1992 robbery and murder of 61 year-old Robert Wasikowski and 45 year-old Sharon Kostura at their respective apartments in Parma, OH.
◾The execution of Raymond Tibbetts has been moved from April 12, 2017 to July 26, 2017. Tibbetts was convicted in Hamilton County for the 1997 murder of his wife Judith Crawford and the couple's 67 year-old landlord Fred Hicks.
◾The execution of Alva Campbell, Jr. has been moved from May 10, 2017 to September 13, 2017. Campbell was convicted in Franklin County for the 1997 murder of Charles Dials. Campbell had taken Dials hostage after assaulting a court officer and fleeing during an appearance before a judge on aggravated robbery charges.
◾The execution of William Montgomery has been moved from June 13, 2017 to October 18, 2017. Montgomery was convicted in Lucas County for the 1986 murder Debra Ogle and Cynthia Tincher.
◾The execution of Robert Van Hook has been moved from July 26, 2017 to November 15, 2017. Van Hook was convicted in Hamilton County for the 1985 murder of David Self, whom he had met at a gay bar and attempted to rob.
◾The execution of Jeffrey A. Wogenstahl has been moved from September 13, 2017 to April 17, 2019. Wogenstahl was convicted in Hamilton County for the 1991 kidnapping and murder of 10 year-old Amber Garrett.
◾The execution of Melvin Bonnell has been moved from October 18, 2017 to April 11, 2018. Bonnell was conviction in Cuyahoga County for the 1987 murder of Robert Bunner.
