Federal appellate court upholds Ohio death-row inmate's sentence



Published: Wed, July 3, 2013 @ 3:13 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A federal appeals panel has upheld a decision denying an Ohio inmate’s appeal of his death sentence for a woman’s 1984 slaying.

John Stumpf has had his death sentence upheld and rejected by courts over the years, including an earlier ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that set Stumpf’s death penalty aside.

The Supreme Court reversed that ruling and ordered the appeals court to consider Stumpf’s argument that his due process rights were violated at sentencing.

The 6th Circuit on today upheld a lower court’s ruling denying Stumpf’s appeal.

Stumpf argued that new evidence after his trial indicated another man may have fired the shots that killed Mary Jane Stout in a robbery in eastern Ohio’s Guernsey County.

of course we can't interrupt the state sponsored murder. Ohio has a lot of catching up to do if we're going to overtake Texas in the "murdering people and calling it justice" department.
