No decision yet on clemency for Roderick Davie


Gov. Ted Strickland has not made a final decision on whether to grant clemency to a man sentenced to be executed Tuesday for killing two people at his former workplace in Warren.

Roderick Davie did not participate in the clemency process and offered no arguments in support of a sentence commutation. And the Ohio Parole Board unanimously recommended the death sentence be carried out.

Davie was convicted of the 1991 murders of John Ira Coleman and Tracey Jefferys and the attempted murder of William Everett two months after being fired from the Veterinary Companies of America in Warren.
