More Executions Delayed

Gov. DeWine delays three additional executions as the state continues to struggle to find an adequate supply of drugs for lethal injection. DeWine attributed the need for the reprieves to the state’s ongoing inability to obtain drugs from pharmaceutical companies. DeWine has said for months he is concerned that drug companies…which oppose the use of their drugs in executions…could pull pharmaceuticals from state hospitals to punish Ohio…if it did secure their drugs and use them for lethal injection. DeWine issued similar reprieves in December, February and April.
