BIROS UPDATE: Biros apologized, thanked friends before execution

LUCASVILLE — Convicted Trumbull County murderer Kenneth Biros apologized and thanked his family and friends for their support and prayers before being executed at 11:47 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility.

But Biros did not look at the family members of the woman he murdered in 1991 as he lay dying on in the execution chamber.

"I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart," he said shortly before the lethal injection was administered. He added, "I get to spend the holidays with my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Peace to you all. Amen."

The process took about 45 minutes, with prison staff taking about 30 minutes to establish one intravenous shunt.
