Lawmaker says delay in execution shows to him it's time to revisit death penalty in Ohio.
By Jo Ingles - July 15, 2011
Democratic State Rep. Ted Celeste says a recent federal court decision that temporarily halted the execution of an Ohio man proves there's good reason to abolish the death penalty all together.


In the recent federal court ruling, Judge Gregory Frost says the state's lethal injection process is flawed. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has decided not to appeal the federal ruling. That means a halt to executions in the state.
