Gov. Strickland again denies clemency for killer Ken Biros

Published: Thu, December 3, 2009 @ 5:47 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Gov. Ted Strickland has denied clemency for a second time for Trumbull County killer Kenneth Biros.

Strickland released the decision early this afternoon, days before Biros is scheduled to face execution at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

“My staff and I have again reviewed the record of the proceedings and the evidence presented in Mr. Biros’ case, the judicial decisions regarding Mr. Biros’ conviction, the Application for Executive Clemency filed by Mr. Biros’ attorneys and arguments presented for and against the clemency request, and Mr. Biros’ institutional mental health record,” Strickland said in a released statement. “We have also reviewed letters received in the governor’s office regarding this matter and the unanimous recommendation against clemency forwarded to me by the Ohio Parole Board ... Based on this further review, my original denial of Mr. Biros’ application for executive clemency stands.”

paulb, you go up to the family of Tami Engstrom and look them straight in the eyes and tell them you think this animal should live the rest of his life. Why should this animal live when he took the life of a 22 year old women? Did she have a chance to live the rest of her life on this planet? There is nothing useful for this animal to be breathing anymore. Tami had no opportunity in her life and this creature is still living and breathing and people feeling bad for him because hes going to be put to death. Well I hope it's long and painful for him, just like it must've been for Tami.
