Killer Gets Reprieve from Death Sentence
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A condemned killer scheduled to die next month gets a reprieve from Ohio Governor John Kasich.
This, after the execution of inmate Dennis McGuire took 26 minutes.
The decision delays the March 19th lethal injection of Gregory Lott. He was sentenced to die for setting a Cleveland man on fire and leaving him to die.
Lott sued in federal court to stop his execution arguing the new two drug combo creates the risk of a cruel and inhumane death.
