BIROS UPDATE: Execution delayed until 11 a.m.



Published: Tue, December 8, 2009 @ 10:01 a.m.

LUCASVILLE — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined Kenneth Biros' last-minute efforts to delay his execution, and state prison officials are poised to administer the lethal injection at about 11 a.m.

The convicted Trumbull County murder sought high court intervention on his request for a temporary restraining order, questioning the constitutionality of Ohio's lethal injection process.

Biros completed visits with family members, friends, spiritual advisers and attorneys before 9 a.m. after a mostly restful night. He requested and received permission to take a white scarf into the execution chamber with him, an apparent Buddhist symbol of purity and happiness. Biros' spiritual advisers include a Catholic priest and two Buddhists.

Biros prayed with his mother and the priest Tuesday morning, holding hands with his mother and kissing her as she left the death house. He also has requested at least four cups of water to drink since waking up just after 6 a.m.

What about the person he murdered? Isn't that cruel and unusual? I wonder he murdered one of your family members would you still have the same point of view

"goodnight sweet prince and say hello to the prince of darkness, hope you suffer an eternity of pain"

I personally knew Tami. I hope Debi, Mert and Tom get some peace from this. For anyone out there that think murders like Biros deserves anything that the worst possible death than remember this. 91 injuries before her death, 91 times that he hurt her, 91 times that he felt good about what he was doing, the 92nd was her last moment on earth. Rest in Peace Tami, we all miss your smile.

I hope he suffers a long and painful death. I hope they screw up and he suffers for hours! End this pitiful lowlife creatures life and lets move on.
For you people that have a problem with the Death Penalty then ask yourself, if this monster didn't kill a innocent 22 year old, he would never be in this predicament, would he? He took a young persons life and now hes scared to die, what a pity, he should ask to be put to death the first time and show remorse instead of being a scared fool. You fools that think the death penalty is so wrong you should think about what he did Tami. Hes getting a royal treatment instead of the way Tami died. Is that fair?

I'm a spirtiaul person who attends church and all of my life I've been against the death penalty. But after reading what this pile of horse pucky did to that poor girl I won't mind seeing him die at all. There was a comment made here that I've heard other places and I think it's one we all really need to think about. If this was your loved one, could you still say "spare him"? I don't mean the politically correct response, i.e., "it won't bring my loved one back," etc. either. I mean really search your heart - I think near everyone would want justice and what happened to Tammi's family was not justice for them or for her.

We go to war and kill to protect our country . We have laws to execute the guilty murderers and protect those within our country . The only problem that I have with our system is that after eighteen years memories dim and people forget the crime . Executions should be carried out within several months after the crime and not many years . Those who would walk in the killers shoes would then truly have a fear of imminent death .

I'm kind of in 2 minds about the speed of all of this. Not because of any perceived sympathy for the guilty but b/c of those on death row who, years later, were proven to be innocent of the crimes they were convicted of. Once someone is executed there's no going back or changing your mind. Then again, wiht people like kb there's no doubt and that should make a difference, too. Not arguing with anyone here - just conversation.

Iam glad he got what he deserved i knew Tami and she was a really sweet person and to have something so horrorifying done to her.And he had the nerve to say it was cruel what they were going to do to him. What about what she went through those 90 some times and that wasnt cruel. Now Tammi can rest in peace and her family can rest assure that there is one less killer out there he got to live 18 years more tha he should have
