Ohio ready to execute security guard’s killer

Ohio prison officials have moved a condemned killer from death row to the state death house ahead of today’s execution.

Inmate Frederick Treesh was sentenced to die for the 1994 shooting death of a security guard after a multistate crime rampage that crossed Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Authorities say he shot Henry Dupree during a robbery of an adult bookstore in Eastlake.

The state parole board voted unanimously against sparing Treesh, and Gov. John Kasich denied his request for mercy.

Treesh blames his actions on his cocaine addiction. Prosecutors say the crimes were intentional.

Treesh arrived at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility on Tuesday morning. He visited with spiritual advisers and his attorney until the evening and was served his requested meal.
