COLUMBUS

A state Supreme Court task force analyzing the effectiveness of Ohio’s capital punishment law has met again as it tries to conclude its work this year.

The committee that convened Thursday in Columbus has examined everything from racial bias in death penalty cases to ways to improve legal representation of capital defendants.

Chairman James Brogan, a retired appeals court judge, has said he expects two reports from the committee, one from a majority backing recommendations, the other from a minority with different views.

Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor convened the task force while making it clear it won’t debate whether the state should have the death penalty. The group includes judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys and academic experts.
