Ohio man executed for fire deaths of 5 children



Published: Tue, July 13, 2010 @ 11:18 a.m.

LUCASVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Ohio has executed a man who killed five children in a 1992 Cincinnati apartment fire that he set in an attempt to destroy evidence of a burglary.

William Garner died by lethal injection at 10:38 a.m. today at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

Garner had burglarized Addie Mack’s apartment after stealing keys from her purse while she received care in the emergency room of a nearby hospital. Six children, ages 8 to 13, were at the apartment alone, and Garner knew they were there when he threw a lit match onto a couch.

Garner has said he thought the children would escape. Only one made it out alive.

The 37-year-old Garner is the sixth person executed in Ohio this year and the 39th since the state resumed the practice in 1999.

I am so glad Ohio is finally doing what needs to be done with these monsters!! My only wish is that the family of these little angels have some kind of closure (however tiny) now that this piece of crap has been put to death! Life and USA - you've got it right!

"Garner admitted stealing a television, a VCR, a telephone and a radio boom box from the apartment, while running into one of the six children, ages 8 to 13, who were sleeping in the apartment that night. Then, on Garner's way out, he set fire to the apartment, even though he knew there were several children inside, the report said."
