Akron child killer Ronald Phillips put to death in first Ohio execution in 3 years

Posted on July 26, 2017 at 10:57 AM

LUCASVILLE, Ohio -- Akron child killer Ronald Phillips was put to death Wednesday, the first execution carried out in Ohio in more than three years.

Phillips, 43, died by lethal injection Wednesday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. The Ohio Parole Board twice unanimously recommended against granting Phillips clemency, calling the rape and murder of three-year-old Sheila Marie Evans "among the worst of the worst capital crimes."

Phillips was the first Ohio prisoner to die by a new three-drug cocktail including midazolam, a sedative involved in problematic executions in several states. Executions have been on hold in Ohio since January 2014, when Preble County man Dennis McGuire took an unusually long 26 minutes to die with a two-drug combo including midazolam.

Phillips and two other death-row inmates sued the state over the proposed method. The U.S. Supreme Court denied their final appeals late Tuesday night.

Phillips was the 54th Ohioan put to death since the state restarted the death penalty in 1999.

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction Director Gary Mohr said the execution team rehearsed the protocol 18 times.

Mohr said the last state execution, during which witnesses observed McGuire gasping and snorting, was "a humane execution."

"I witnessed it; I saw that," Mohr told reporters before Wednesday's execution. "I have confidence we're going to continue to do this in a dignified, peaceful, humane way."

Prison officials checked Phillips' veins twice Tuesday to make sure they were accessible for Wednesday's execution.

Phillips visited with his attorneys, spiritual advisers and a friend on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Phillips was observed praying and reading the Bible several times since arriving at the death house.

He was served a special meal Tuesday night that included a bell pepper and mushroom pizza, strawberry grape juice and Pepsi. He declined breakfast Wednesday morning.

Last words and such...

Phillips apologized during his final statement, saying, "Sheila Marie didn't deserve what I did to her."

His last meal was a large cheese, bell pepper and mushroom pizza, strawberry cheesecake, a two-liter bottle of Pepsi, a 10-ounce bottle of grape juice and piece of unleavened bread.

Factoids...

Phillips was the 1st condemned murderer executed in Ohio this year and the 54th since executions resumed.
His was the 15th 2017 US execution and the 1457th since 1976.

The skinny...

Phillips slipped through the noose several times with appeals and drug shortages since the 1993 murder.  This time his luck ran out and he became the first Ohio execution in three and a half years.

Up next...

Taichin Preyor is set to be executed tomorrow in Texas for the 2004 stabbing death of 20 year old Jami Tucker.

Well well well,  Ohio lining them up once again. 
With one scheduled every 6 weeks for the next 6 years and this one appearing to go well there should be a long line of murdering scum waking up to the realisation that the conveyor belt has started.

The noose is tightening scumbags!

Word around the campfire is that Ohio has sufficient drugs to whack everyone with a date.
