Ohio condemned killer wants execution delayed

Published: Fri, September 25, 2009 @ 2:00 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio man sentenced to die for strangling his 67-year-old neighbor wants his execution delayed because of last week’s botched attempt to put another inmate to death.

Forty-three-year-old Lawrence Reynolds, scheduled to die Oct. 8, says the state’s unsuccessful attempt to execute Romell Broom shows Ohio’s lethal injection procedures are flawed.

Reynolds says 2006 and 2007 executions that took much longer than expected also show a pattern of problems with Ohio executions.

Attorneys for Reynolds say in a filing with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday that he should be allowed to challenge the constitutionality of Ohio’s execution process.

Gov. Ted Strickland stopped Broom’s execution Sept. 15 after two hours after executioners failed to find a usable vein.

Well it's not as exciting as a strangulation but lethal injection will set him on the same journey as he sent his elderly victim . Strap him down and get a volunteer to strangle him if he opposes a lethal injection . It was OK for his victim .

I"m all for some other form of putting thiese people too death. Let see we can use stoning,guns,drowning,bring back hanging...I don't really care..if you killed another person..and it wasn't in self-defense then you deserve to die...why not let the victims family decide how you die from now on?

Come on people don't be so harsh murders and rapist have feels too. He's paying for his crime, he will be rehabilitated once he serves his time. He has it rough in there, three served meals a day, free cable TV, books, and a fitness room. All heck just kill him already and stop wasting any more of the tax payers money. Not only does he need to pay for his crimes, he now owes us thousands in wasted tax money! Instead they could of used that wasted money to fix the pot holes on Oltown road in Austintown.
