Here is what we have on him..James Earl Trimble
On 1/21/05, Trimble murdered his live-in girlfriend, Renee Bauer, and her 7-year-old son, Dakota Bauer, after she threatened to leave him. Trimble fired 13 rounds from his assault rifle into Renee with several others passing through her body and striking her son, Dakota. The next morning, Trimble shot and killed Sarah Positano, a college student
from Ontario, Canada, while he held her hostage inside her Kent State University apartment.http://off2dr.com/smf/index.php?topic=6334.msg43807#msg43807
Positano killer's execution delayed
The Ohio Supreme Court granted on Tuesday triple murderer James Earl Trimble's motion to delay his scheduled Sept. 29 execution date until all of his state appeals are exhausted.
Trimble, 48, is on death row in the Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown.
On Oct. 25, 2005, after the longest trial in Portage County history, a jury of seven men and five women convicted Trimble of three counts of aggravated murder in the shooting deaths of his girlfriend, Renee Bauer, her seven-year-old son, Dakota Bauer and 22-year-old Kent State University student Sarah Positano, of Sault Ste. Marie, in January of that year.
The Ohio Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision on June 30 of this year, denied Trimble's direct appeal of his capital murder convictions and death sentence. That ruling rejected all 15 allegations outlined in Trimble's appeal, including a Portage County judge's decision not to move the trial from Ravenna.
Appellate attorneys also had argued that jurors might have been influenced by the display of Trimble's firearms in the courtroom and jury room during deliberations. But the court rejected the claim and upheld the jury's recommendation for the death penalty.
Last week, Trimble's attorneys filed another appeal, setting in motion the process that led to Tuesday's decision to indefinitely delay the execution date.
A July 7 filing with the Ohio Supreme Court notified the justices that Trimble will file a petition, called a Writ of Certiorari, asking the U. S. Supreme Court to review the lower-court decisions.http://off2dr.com/smf/index.php?topic=5869.msg46289#msg46289
